Determining When to Start BOTOX® Cosmetic


Contrary to popular misconception, BOTOX® Cosmetic neither speeds the aging process nor eventually becomes useless. It is safe to begin BOTOX® Cosmetic injections as soon as you notice your first wrinkles and continue it until you no longer wish to. Once you discontinue injections, your skin will simply return to its natural state. Dr. John Corey would be happy to assess your skin, discuss your options, and help you determine when it will be most beneficial to begin your treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing muscles, thereby allowing the skin above them to smooth out. It does this by temporarily blocking signals between muscles and nerves, but does not damage either of these things. The reason BOTOX® Cosmetic is such a popular procedure is that it blocks the signals that cause wrinkles without interfering with a normal range of facial movement. Due to this, you maintain full control of your facial functions and expressions, but lose the unsightly wrinkles around areas such as the mouth and eyes.

During your BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation at our Phoenix area plastic surgery office, Dr. Corey will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you determine if this treatment is right for you.
