About BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic is an exciting innovation in nonsurgical wrinkle treatments that has become extremely popular due to its simplicity, affordability, and effectiveness. Although many practitioners offer BOTOX treatment, few have the extensive medical training and knowledge of oculofacial anatomy that Dr. Shovlin offers.

BOTOX is made of a purified protein that, when injected into tiny facial muscles, relaxes them, smoothing dynamic wrinkles in the eye and forehead area. BOTOX is very effective in the treatment of:

  • Crow's feet
  • Vertical frown lines
  • Horizontal forehead furrows

Dr. Shovlin injects precisely targeted muscles, which eliminates the wrinkles without affecting facial expression. BOTOX creates a smoother, refreshed appearing eye and forehead area without surgery.

While BOTOX may not be a solution for you, we offer a variety of treatments that can provide a more youthful appearance such as eyelid surgery or injectable fillers. Dr. Joseph Shovlin will work with you to find the ideal intervention to meet your specific goals.

BOTOX Treatment with Dr. Shovlin

As an ophthalmologist and fellowship trained oculofacial plastic surgeon, Dr. Shovlin is uniquely qualified to administer BOTOX for rejuvenation of the eye area. Ophthalmologists were the first to use BOTOX to treat medical conditions over 25 years ago. Dr. Shovlin has had extensive experience with both therapeutic and cosmetic use of BOTOX since 1992. His in-depth knowledge of oculofacial anatomy results in improved safety, efficacy, and results for his patients.

BOTOX injection treatments are relatively quick and comfortable, and require no downtime or recovery period. Dr. Shovlin will first determine the precise injection sites for your specific condition. He then uses a very fine needle to inject the BOTOX, which results in minimal swelling or inflammation. A cool compress applied for a few minutes typically eliminates any telltale signs of BOTOX injection.

Recovery and Results

Patients typically return right away to work or normal daily activities. Unlike injectable fillers, BOTOX results do not appear immediately, but emerge over the course of 5 to 7 days. At this time, the eye and forehead area will take on a smoother, more youthful appearance that is natural looking. Patients can expect this result to last 3 to 4 months, and sometimes longer, particularly in patients who maintain regularly scheduled BOTOX treatments.
