Those first signs of aging can often appear on your face before you're ready for them. Wrinkles, lines, and creases can make you look older than you feel, but BOTOX® Cosmetic gives MetroWest and Boston area women and men a convenient, effective way to fend off facial wrinkles. Dr. Stephen Pap offers these and many other non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to help his patients look vibrant and refreshed.

BOTOX effectively helps our Boston area patients reduce dynamic facial wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscle movement. Common trouble spots include:

  • Horizontal forehead creases
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow's feet at the outer corners of the eyes

During your consultation, Dr. Pap will ask you to describe your cosmetic concerns and propose a unique treatment solution for you. For some patients, a more complete improvement is achieved by combining BOTOX with a dermal filler like RADIESSE® or JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel.

How It Works
BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes and reduces the activity of the muscles that cause the targeted wrinkles. It does not correct wrinkles by filling them in as with dermal fillers. While certain areas of the facial muscles are affected, you still will be able to smile, frown, and make other natural expressions after your BOTOX treatments.

What to Expect
These simple and convenient treatments are performed right in our office and usually take less than 30 minutes to complete. Using a fine needle, BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into specific areas of the facial muscles that cause the targeted wrinkles. Most patients don't require anesthetic as the injections usually feel like only a mild pinprick. After treatment you can immediately return to your regular daily activities, although you should avoid exercise and sun exposure for the first 24 hours. Your improvements will appear gradually, typically within 3 to 5 days, as the muscle movement subsides and wrinkles fade. The treated areas will continue to smooth out for approximately the first 2 weeks and once achieved the final improvements typically last for 3 to 6 months. It's easy to maintain your youthful look with periodic visits to Dr. Pap for touch-up treatments.
