Botox - St. Louis
Frown lines and crow’s feet naturally emerge during the aging process. Botox can be used to inhibit muscular contractions that cause these wrinkles. Botox injections are a short, simple procedure that produces noticeable results. You’ll notice fewer creases and you’ll have a more awake and pleasant expression. Even the disappearance of a few lines can transform your entire face. Wrinkles on the forehead, near the eyes, mouth, between the eyebrows, or even the chin or neck can be reduced or eliminated.
What does the procedure entail?
What can I expect?
Who is a good candidate?
This procedure is performed by Dr. Gurley in Dr. Gurley’s office. Many people go right back to work or to whatever they were doing after Botox treatments. Botox will calm down the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving you an awakened and brightened face. Botox can be repeated every three to four months.
Most patients never bruise with Botox, but that is the most common side effect. So, expect that you will have one to two bruises lasting one week. The full effect of Botox is seen within 14 days.
You may be a candidate for this procedure if:
You have horizontal forehead creases;
you have crows feet; you have frown lines between your eyebrows; you are interested in a nonsurgical procedure and you are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Dr. Gurley and her team will carefully examine your face to determine if Botox is right for you. Often, a combination of Botox and a facial filler will provide a patient with a good, long-lasting result. Dr. Gurley’s surgical skill and artistic eye will help you both decide where the injections should be placed. Many patients report minimization of lines that have bothered them for years. You deserve to feel comfortable and confident putting your best face forward.
