Serving Pittsburgh, Greensburg and Johnstown
The most common non-surgical procedure now performed in the United States is Botox Cosmetic – known as “lunchtime wrinkle removal.” Botox Cosmetic is a popular draw for patients who come to us from throughout Johnstown and greater Pittsburgh area. Our doctors, Dr. Theodore Lazzaro and Dr. Jeffrey Antimarino, are highly recognized Pittsburgh Botox specialists with thorough understanding of facial anatomy. Their advanced training and experience allow them to consistently deliver superior results for Botox Pittsburgh patients.
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic treatments are a popular way to treat facial wrinkles and improve the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and laugh lines. Botox Cosmetic represents a natural, non-surgical way to treat the aging face. Botox Cosmetic is a paralyzing agent that is effective in treating the signs of aging that are caused by the contraction of specific facial muscles.
Are any risks involved?
During Botox Cosmetic injections at our practice near Johnstown and Pittsburgh, you may feel slight discomfort. Your skin may feel tight and some swelling may occur. Minimal and temporary side effects most commonly include bruising at the injection site.
What happens during Botox Cosmetic treatments?
Botox Cosmetic treatments consist of a series of injections, which take about 10 minutes each. The Botox Cosmetic injection agent temporarily paralyzes the muscle underlying your troublesome creases, so it cannot contract and cause wrinkling.
Who is a good candidate for Botox Cosmetic treatments?
Those of nearly any age who are healthy and seek to erase signs of aging are excellent candidates for Botox Cosmetic injections. Our center draws patients from throughout the Johnstown and the greater Pittsburgh area.
Botox Cosmetic is used to enhance your appearance and does not take the place of standard plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, eyelid lifts, and laser skin resurfacing. Sometimes, Botox Cosmetic injections are used in conjunction with other treatments to dramatically revitalize your face. As highly experienced Pittsburgh Botox specialists, Dr. Lazzaro and Dr. Antimarino can help determine what course of treatment is best for you, given your individual goals.
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.
