Speaking from Experience
“In order to achieve the best outcome, I administer all BOTOX injections myself, and I believe that my patients appreciate that.”
How It Works
BOTOX Cosmetic and its more recent alternatives Dysport® and XEOMIN® are neuromodulators that help to smooth out lines and wrinkles caused by repeated contractions of facial muscles, known as "dynamic" wrinkles. BOTOX blocks the nerve signals to these muscles, which allows the skin to rest and regenerate, leaving it smooth and wrinkle-free.
Dr. Konstantin combines his scientific knowledge of facial anatomy, attention to detail, and natural aesthetic sense to provide a variety of improvements by targeting the following concerns:
- Deep, vertical "frown lines" between the eyebrows
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes called "crow's feet"
- Neck banding
Dr. Konstantin often recommends BOTOX for patients who want to treat the signs of aging, but aren't ready for brow lift surgery. Dr. Konstantin uses BOTOX to subtly elevate the eyebrows as an individual treatment or in combination with dermal filler injections to restore volume in the temples. In younger patients, BOTOX treatments may be used to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.

Dr. Konstantin's Modern BOTOX Techniques
In the past, it was a common practice to eliminate all facial muscle activity by injecting fairly large amounts of BOTOX. It's important for a doctor to make a conscious effort to avoid the fake and overdone look. Too much BOTOX can make you look stiff and emotionless, leading to the infamous "frozen face" effect.
More recently, with the use of modern injection techniques, we can achieve a subtler effect that still allows patients to make normal facial expressions. Dr. Konstantin customizes each BOTOX treatment to the individual patient's facial anatomy, and judiciously uses a small amount of neuromodulators to target specific areas of the face, softening up the wrinkles without causing an over-injected appearance.
Your BOTOX Treatment
The injection starts with the application of a skin-numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Then a small amount of BOTOX is injected directly into the area of excessive muscle movement. Each injection lasts only a brief instant, and your entire appointment should take only about a half-hour.
The effect of neuromodulator injections usually becomes apparent within 3 to 7 days, and the results of a single treatment typically last about 3 to 4 months. To achieve the full effects, it is highly recommended that the face is retouched about every 6 months.
