Non-surgical plastic surgery procedures – which have significantly advanced over the last few decades – allow patients who need mild to moderate improvements to enjoy some of the same benefits as plastic surgery without going through the scalpel. With his extensive experience and unique aesthetic eye, Dr. Christian Arroyo’s goal with Botox® is to keep your skin looking young and wrinkle-free.
How Is Botox Administered?
Botox treatment should only be administered by a plastic surgeon or injection specialist who understands the muscles that cause wrinkles and facial lines to form. Injecting this nonsurgical treatment is a delicate balancing act that requires skill to achieve a natural appearance without an overdone appearance or asymmetry. The first step of the procedure is to provide ice or topical numbing to keep the patient comfortable throughout the treatment. Once this is done, Dr. Arroyo will draw Botox into a syringe from a vial and use the finest needles available to get it into the targeted muscles without pain. This cosmetic treatment can be completed in about 10 minutes, and you will be able to get back to your regular activities right after.
