The most common non-surgical procedure performed in the US is Botox Cosmetic. 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?
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. FDA approved 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.
Botox is very simple to perform for our certified injectors and usually takes only a few minutes. Using a very tiny needle, a small amount of Botox® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that cause the wrinkles, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles, smoothing out the skin. Since the needle used is so small, there is no discomfort and no anesthesia is needed. The final result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. Results typically last 3-4 months*.
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)
For many people, having to deal with those annoying sweat stains on their clothes, hoping no one notices them, is a daily occurrence. The embarrassment associated with excessive sweating can be profound. Whether the problem is underarm sweating or sweaty palms, the impact on day to day life can be significant. Many with excessive palmar sweating avoid shaking hands at all costs while others with excessive underarm sweat will try to wear special pads or garments, try multiple antiperspirants and/or topical medication to try to ‘stem the tide.
Now there is a safe, reliable and well-tolerated means of reducing sweat production that is quickly and easily administered that lasts for several months: Botox Cosmetic injection. Botox Cosmetic is not just for smoothing out wrinkles. It is now FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. The Spa at Aestique is currently treating patients with excessive underarm sweating with Botox Cosmetic. The treatment itself only takes 15 – 20 minutes and on average it lasts about six months.
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.
The average cost for this treatment is typically around $950 to $1200. Most patients say this is huge savings to what they spend on dry cleaning, deodorants and topical treatments every month.
