Dr. Andrea Doyle performs Botox injectable treatments at her Rhode Island plastic surgery practice for men and women wanting to soften the appearance of dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. Over time, your face begins to develop signs of aging such as crow’s feet or frown lines, the result of repeated facial contractions. If these lines and wrinkles are getting in the way of you feeling like your youthful and confident self, Dr. Doyle can help treat them with personalized Botox injections.

Who is Botox for?

Botox is a great treatment for anyone who is unhappy with his or her signs of aging, but who is not yet ready to undergo a more invasive procedure. Botox can help to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyes. The treatment works by safely relaxing the underlying facial muscles and softening the expressions that cause the wrinkles to form.

In addition to treating lines and wrinkles, Botox can also be used for medical purposes such as muscle spasms, overactive bladder, or even excessive sweating. Dr. Doyle can discuss your Botox options and answer any questions you may have during your consultation.

The Botox procedure

Botox treatments should only be performed by a certified professional to ensure beautiful results and avoid unnecessary complications. Dr. Doyle is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and experienced in performing non-surgical Botox injections.

Dr. Doyle will discuss your Botox treatment with you during your consultation. The number of units needed and the location of your injections will vary depending on the existing condition of your skin and your unique goals. Botox contains a purified botulinum toxin that causes the muscles to relax. Dr. Doyle will carefully administer each injection of Botox into the underlying muscle at the target area to soften the signs of aging.

Botox recovery and results

Botox treatments take just minutes to perform and with little to no downtime; in fact, you should be able to resume your daily routine immediately. Unlike dermal fillers, it will take some time to notice the full effects of Botox. You will notice improvements at about 3-5 days after your session with Dr. Doyle, but it will take a couple weeks to realize your full results as the treatment gradually smoothes away lines and wrinkles.

The results of your Botox treatment can last for up to 3-6 full months. When you notice the lines and wrinkles beginning to come back, you can schedule a maintenance Botox treatment with Dr. Doyle. Some patients also choose to supplement Botox with dermal fillers for a liquid facelift.
