BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most well known non-surgical treatment for brow and facial rejuvenation. The treatment has proven to be an effective and safe way to reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging. Because of Dr. Ben Light’s skill and experience, he was invited to participate as a speaker and trainer for Allergan, Inc., the company that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic. He has helped many patients in Decatur, Alabama and nearby areas enjoy a refreshed, revitalized appearance with this popular treatment.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in less than an hour. Although the treatment is straightforward and does not take long to complete, it’s important to receive BOTOX® Cosmetic from a qualified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. Using a specialized needle, Dr. Light injects BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear on the brow, around the eyes, or at the base of the nose. The injections contain botulinum toxin type A, a compound that relaxes the muscles and helps smooth wrinkles.
