botox cosmetic shrewsbury maBotox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, yet many are still confused by the product and the procedure. Botox is generally used to treat wrinkles and facial expression lines, such as those lines between the eyebrows that can make your expression look “angry”. Approved by the FDA, Botox injections are a safe and effective way to restore a more youthful appearance.

Commonly known for preventing wrinkles, Botox can do just that as well as lift the corners of the mouth and soften the appearance of the neck when injected by an experienced physician such as Dr. Paul Willis. It is important to have an experienced doctor perform Botox to ensure you receive natural results. Receiving too much of the Botox protein may cause an unpleasant look. Dr. Willis, at the New England Laser Lipo, is highly qualified to judge the size of your facial muscles to know how much Botox you will need.

Like most injections, Botox can be slightly uncomfortable. If you are more sensitive, ask Dr. Willis about using a numbing cream or ice to reduce discomfort. Some patients may experience slight redness or elevation in the treated area. However, these symptoms typically resolve within one hour. Botox is a quick procedure with results lasting around three or four months.

Serving the Worcester and Shrewsbury area, Dr. Willis is a highly trained cosmetic physician. Dr. Willis is able to treat wrinkles and facial expression found on the forehead, eyebrows, around the mouth and the neck. Botox is comprised of a safe protein that weakens the nerves and muscles around treatment area. Unlike fillers, Botox impacts the muscle while a filler balances the mismatched volumes in the face. For deep-set lines or wrinkles, Dr. Willis also offers dermal fillers including Juvéderm, Radiesse and Belotero Balance.
