WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox injections can help you look younger quickly and easily and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the face. Marielaina Perrone DDS in Henderson, NV is pleased to offer BOTOX to her patients. This nonsurgical esthetic procedure provides outstanding cosmetic results and is available for both women and men.
Botox injectable can give a dramatic aesthetic improvement to facial wrinkles. These wrinkles result from our expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes.
When injected into the facial muscles, BOTOX temporarily blocks specific muscle movements to soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX injections are most commonly administered between the eyebrows, Crow's feet, and across the forehead.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are ideal for men and women who want to:

HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
BOTOX injectable treatments are performed right in our office by Marielaina Perrone DDS. Following a cosmetic consultation to determine treatment needed and desired, you will be asked to make various expressions using the upper face, like squinting and frowning, to give Dr Perrone a guide where the injections should be applied.
The injection sites will be cleansed thoroughly and BOTOX will be applied using a fine needle. Following injection a cold compress will be usedto help decrease discomfort and possible bruising. A numbing cream is also available if needed to help make the entire process more comfortable. BOTOX treatments generally take about 15-20 minutes, and you can typically return to your usual non strenuous activities after leaving the office.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER BOTOX?
Strenuous activity should be postponed for at least 24 hours. Dr Perrone will advise you to keep your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which may accidentally spread the BOTOX to undesired areas.
The injection sites may develop bruising, swelling, or redness but you should not have any long-lasting side effects. For many patients, it takes about a week for results to show fully. The results typically last 3 – 4 months before needing a touch up to maintain your youthful look.
BOTOX = LESS WRINKLES
