Who hasn’t heard of injectables such as Botox? And with every medical office on the block offering it, why should you come to OptimalSelf MD? Because skill, proper assessment and customized treatment techniques make a big difference in how you will look! Not all injections are equal, as many of you may know.

As the natural volume of youthful skin starts to diminish over time, wrinkles and folds begin to form. Botox Cosmetic and Dysport help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the upper portions of the face including worry lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and smile lines in order to provide a rejuvenated, younger appearance.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat and the connections between the skin and the bone relax. Juvederm and Restylane dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

“Often,​ ​patients​ ​ask​ ​about​ ​raising​ ​their​ ​eyebrows​ ​with​ ​Botox.​ ​I​ ​explain​ ​in​ ​detail​ ​the​ ​underlying​ ​complex, muscular​ ​components​ ​of​ ​their​ ​forehead.​ ​I’m​ ​very​ ​detailed​ ​in​ ​my​ ​evaluation​ ​of​ ​each​ ​patient.​ ​As​ ​every​ ​individual has​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​eyelid,​ ​eyebrow​ ​and​ ​forehead,​ ​these​ ​features​ ​must​ ​be​ ​taken​ ​into​ ​consideration​ ​before​ ​just injecting​ ​a​ ​bunch​ ​of​ ​Botox!

Explaining​ ​what​ ​I​ ​can​ ​and​ ​cannot​ ​do​ ​with​ ​an​ ​injection​ ​(and​ ​if​ ​additional​ ​procedures​ ​may​ ​be​ ​needed)​ ​is​ ​just​ ​a part​ ​of​ ​our​ ​conversation.​ ​That’s​ ​the​ ​power​ ​of​ ​having​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​non-surgical​ ​and​ ​plastic​ ​surgical​ ​options​ ​at hand​ ​— to​ ​effect​ ​the​ ​best​ ​aesthetic​ ​change​ ​for​ ​my​ ​patients.”
