- Why Choose Sharp?
Sharp Rees-Stealy's Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery offers Botox to minimize the appearance of lines in the skin. Botox is administered to an affected muscle, relaxing that muscle, resulting in smoothing of the corresponding line. Many skin areas can be treated, but those most responsive are the forehead, the "frown" lines between the eyebrows and the "crow's feet." Although one treatment will reduce the muscles effect, it may take one or two touch ups to realize the optimum result. After the desired effect is achieved, it will be maintained for four to six months. Further treatment at that time can help retain this effect.
Botox may be used alone or in combination with other techniques for improving the appearance of the skin. It is often used together with various peels and filling agents to achieve increased results.
