Botox® in Detroit, MI
Many aesthetic procedures have been revolutionized and replaced with modern alternatives. Botox®, however, remains one of the most popular and effective treatments for wrinkle reduction. Birmingham Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., offers Botox® for men and women who live in and around Detroit, Farmington Hills and the surrounding communities of Michigan.
What Is Botox®?
Injected under the skin, Botox® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a dermal filling solution that restores the skin’s appearance to reduce common signs of aging. It contains a specially refined bacterium that temporarily paralyzes muscles to produce anti-aging results. Most often used to treat areas on the face, Botox® can effectively target and restore problem areas, such as around the eyes or forehead. When aging and natural causes take a toll on your skin, Botox® may be the answer to reviving its youthful, radiant look.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits, Botox® injections can also treat a range of other non-cosmetic conditions. Symptoms of overactive bladder, migraines, and excessive perspiration can all be treated and improved with Botox®.
Botox® treatments offer clients a variety of benefits and are customizable based on your individual need. Botox® can:
- Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Give the appearance of smoother, softer skin
- Aid in the management of migraines (when used in conjunction with other treatments)
- Reduce excessive sweating, especially in the underarms
Whether it’s medical or aesthetic reasons, clients can finally get the confidence and freedom from trouble areas with Botox®!
Where Can Botox® Be Applied?
Botox® can be applied to a number of common problem areas successfully. Most commonly used to treat the face, the following areas can benefit from injections:
- Forehead trouble areas
- Lines on the forehead
- Frown lines
- Eyes and nose lines
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
- Around the mouth
- Gummy smiles
- Marionette lines
- Perioral rhytids (lip or smoker’s lines)
- Chin and neck treatments
- Dimples on the chin
- Platysmal bands
How Is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is injected using a very fine-gauge, hypodermic needle. The procedure is very brief and, in most cases, requires little to no preparation. Depending on the specific treatment, local anesthesia may be administered, but sedation is not necessary for Botox®. Dr. Karaca will advise each client on what they can expect during the procedure and what to do for preparation and recovery. Effects of a single treatment typically last up to six months before additional treatments are necessary.
Botox® Procedure Preparation
During your consult, please advise Dr. Karaca if you’ve had Botox® or any other injections recently, as additional precautionary measures may be necessary. In addition, it is important to discuss all routine medications including allergy medications, muscle relaxers, pain relievers and sleep aids. To minimize the risk of bruising and bleeding, it is beneficial to avoid medication or substances that can thin the blood, such as aspirin and Ibuprofen.
Recovery from Botox® is very minimal. Most clients resume normal activity directly following the procedure. For a short period after, rubbing your face, sleeping on your back and strenuous exercise are generally not recommended to allow the injections to settle. Post-injection discomfort can usually be managed with a cold compress or over-the-counter medications if necessary.
How Much Does Botox® Treatment Cost In Detroit?
Botox® is considered an elective cosmetic procedure in most cases, so clients will be required to cover the cost, which typically varies with the number of injections and amount of solution necessary. The best way to understand your individual investment requirement is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Karaca. Birmingham Plastic Surgery accepts personal checks, cash and major credit cards for all procedures. Financing options are also available.
