Botox Cosmetic Eye Treatment in Honolulu, HI
Millions of men and women have benefited from BOTOX® Cosmetic and now EyeSight Hawaii is happy to offer BOTOX to our patients. Only licensed and trained healthcare professionals, like Dr. Olkowski, have the experience necessary to administer BOTOX Cosmetic.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment can last up to 4 months. A treatment consists of a few tiny injections and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
Note: If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.
There’s no recovery time needed and no anesthesia is required. There is minimal discomfort so after your treatment, you’re ready to get on with your day! No downtime! The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
What causes wrinkles, and how can Botox Help?
The lines that appear between your brows (glabellar lines) actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression “wearing your emotions on your sleeve,” but in reality you wear them on your face. If you’re angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can see, you’re frowning.
After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those glabellar lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men’s, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent. Fortunately, treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic with Dr. Olkowski can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
