Serving Pittsburgh, Greensburg and Johnstown
The most common non-surgical procedure now performed in the United States is Botox Cosmetic. Botox Cosmetic is a very popular procedure for patients who come to us from throughout Greensburg and surrounding Westmoreland County areas, Johnstown and greater Pittsburgh area. Our doctors, Dr. Theodore Lazzaro, as well as our Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner are highly recognized Pittsburgh Botox specialists with thorough understanding of facial anatomy, proper use of doses of Botox and the many years of experience using Botox Cosmetic to consistently deliver superior results for our Botox patients.
How does Botox Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults. Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Your BOTOX practitioner will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

Is Botox Cosmetic right for me?
Only your aesthetic practitioner can determine whether BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you. We are happy to see you for a BOTOX consultation at which time we will review your medical history, take photos and determine if Botox is a good option for you. Every patient is different and we specifically go over your physical exam and what realistic expectations are for you.
If we determine that BOTOX is a good choice for you the procedure involves a series of injections which take several minutes each. Botox starts to work usually within 24-48 hours and reaches peak effect closer to 14 days after treatment.
Botox Cosmetic for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
The social embarrassment associated with excessive sweating can be profound. Whether the problem is primarily underarm sweating or palmar sweating, or both, the impact on normal social interaction can be significant. Some individuals with excessive underarm sweat production wear special pads and garments to try to ‘stem the tide. Many with excessive palmar sweating avoid shaking hands at all costs.
For the first time, there is safe, reliable and well-tolerated means of reducing sweat production that is quickly and easily administered and lasts for months: Botox Cosmetic injection. Botox Cosmetic, approved now for several years for the treatment of facial wrinkles, is now FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.
We are currently treating patients with excessive underarm sweating. The treatment on average lasts about six months, which is somewhat more prolonged that the effect of Botox Cosmetic injection for facial wrinkles. To reduce the discomfort associated with multiple injections, the skin of the treated area is cooled with ice packs immediately prior to Botox Cosmetic administration.
Many of our patients come in for treatment on a regular basis, usually about twice a year, so that this frustrating problem is almost completely eliminated from their lives. Others come in prior to important social engagements, such as weddings and reunions and before important public appearances. Our patients who have undergone Botox Cosmetic for hyperhidrosis often state that the treatment is life changing.
