The APS Advantage
Our patients in the Kansas City area appreciate that all BOTOX injections are performed by our plastic surgeons. This ensures that you benefit from their in-depth knowledge, experience, and skill and can expect the best possible results. Depending on whether you want dramatic or subtle changes, our surgeons will customize your procedure to your preferences. You’ll look beautiful, natural, and well-rested in just a few minutes.
Understanding Your Treatment
BOTOX is prescription medication that is used to relax the muscles responsible for creating frown lines. When injected in the appropriate locations, BOTOX creates a smoothing effect that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes.
At our practice, BOTOX is most frequently recommended for men and women who want to correct:
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead creases
- Crow’s feet
Sometimes our patients combine BOTOX Cosmetic with injectable fillers for an overall rejuvenating effect. BOTOX is also an excellent maintenance treatment for our patients who want to prolong their results from facial plastic surgery procedures such as a face lift. We invite you to explore all our anti-aging options.
What to Expect
You will meet with one of our plastic surgeons for a consultation and evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for BOTOX. If the treatment is right for you, your surgeon will mark the areas to be treated and may also apply a topical numbing cream to the skin for added comfort. BOTOX is then gently and strategically administered using a thin, delicate needle. This process is not usually uncomfortable and takes only minutes.
Once finished, you are free to return to your normal activities with no special aftercare. While experiences vary, you should see results gradually, with final results appearing over the next week. The skin appears smoother and looks younger with less noticeable lines and wrinkles. BOTOX injections are most effective when repeated every few months depending on individual needs.
