Botox in Phoenix, AZ
You cannot stop the aging process, but Botox® treatments will help you manage how aging affects your appearance. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh is a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in Botox® treatments for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is one of the most widely-known injectable cosmetic treatments. The product has a global reputation for being a safe and effective way to help men and women look younger without surgery. Botox® is unique because it contains a special toxin that temporarily paralyzes facial muscles that are known to cause lines and wrinkles in the forehead and brow area.
Benefits of Botox®
Men and women in the Phoenix area prefer Botox® to other aesthetic treatments because the product:
- Requires no downtime
- Corrects lines and wrinkles that traditionally required extensive plastic surgery
- Gives the skin a smooth and youthful appearance after just one treatment
- Results last for four to six months
What Can I Expect from Botox®?
Administering Botox® is a quick and easy process, but you should entrust your treatments to an experienced and knowledgeable plastic surgeon. The key to achieving the best results from Botox® is using the smallest amount necessary to relax the muscles as well as injecting the product into the correct muscles. Dr. Taghizadeh has the experience you need to confidently choose Botox® treatments as an anti-aging solution.
How Botox® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?
Aging causes two types of wrinkles on your face:
- Fine lines and wrinkles that stem from lower amounts of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other vital substances
- Dynamic wrinkles that are formed through the contraction of facial muscles
Botox® is specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles in the forehead and brow area. These wrinkles are some of the earliest signs of aging, and other injectable treatments would not produce the same results.
Recovery from Botox®
Immediately after your treatment, you will see the amazing results of Botox® injections. You see a noticeable improvement in the wrinkles in the forehead and brow area. In most cases, several injections are needed at specific points along the facial muscles. You may have some tenderness around the injections sites. Botox® will keep your wrinkles at bay for four to six months at which time you can have follow-up treatments.
Where Can Botox® Be Applied?
Dr. Taghizadeh recommends Botox® for:
- Marionette lines
- Crow’s feet
- Dimples in the chin area
- Frown lines
- Lip lines (smoker’s lines)
- Lines on the forehead
- Banding in the neck area
Botox® for Excessive Perspiration
The toxin in Botox® is clinically proven to reduce underarm sweating in patients with hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excess perspiration.
Treating Migraines with Botox®
The FDA has approved Botox® for treating migraines. The product provides relief to men and women who are unsuccessful in managing the frequency and severity of migraines with traditional options. Dr. Taghizadeh works with your primary physician to determine the best way to incorporate Botox® injections in your current course of treatment.
Will Everyone Benefit from Botox®?
If you want to look younger without having surgery, Botox® may be right for you. Dr. Taghizadeh encourages men and women to learn about all of their options for minimally-invasive injectable anti-aging treatments before deciding if Botox® is the right option.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Phoenix?
