Dr. Roche is one of the Detroit, Michigan area’s most experienced providers of Botox® Cosmetic. This injectable treatment frequently is the first cosmetic procedure a person will try. Both men and women commonly use Botox® Cosmetic. Using botulinum toxin or Botox, has been widely used and is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. It is use to eliminate or reduce worry and frown lines, “crow’s feet”, laugh lines and other wrinkles sometimes called dynamic wrinkles.
The procedure works by physiologically weakening facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to expression lines. The contraction of these muscles result in wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles thereby relaxing them. The result is that the pull of the underlying facial muscles relaxes causing the skin to flatten. This results in a smooth, unwrinkled look.
Botox® Cosmetic can be used to the glabellar complex, vertical/frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, perioral, dimpled chin, platysmal band and under arms to reduce sweating. Botox is also used to treat headaches, migraines and TMJ.
Because there is no sedative or anesthetic needed, patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Dr. Roche recommends that the patient not lie down for three or four hours following treatment. The treatment takes 5 to 10 days to take effect and lasts for four to six months. Clinical studies suggest that, after several rounds of treatment, the patient may require injections less often.
