Dr. Kuzel administers botox treatment to female client

Botox® Cosmetic

Back in 1978, when it was first approved as a therapeutic treatment for crossed eyes, few could have imagined how revolutionary Botox® would be. Since then, Botox® has become a medical and cosmetic panacea, effectively treating everything from crossed eyes to migraines to excessive sweating, to facial lines and wrinkles.

Today Botox® Cosmetic is the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure in North America, used to smooth to treat or prevent fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face, on the forehead and around the eyes.

the signature difference

When administering Botox® Cosmetic, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why Dr. Kuzel starts with a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and creates a customized treatment plan tailored to your desired outcome. He takes the time to observe your natural facial expressions and designs a treatment to keep you looking refreshed and radiant, not frozen.

As a skilled injector with years of education and expertise, Dr. Kuzel executes a precise and even distribution, tailoring the injections to suit your unique facial anatomy and the natural-looking outcome you seek.

How Botox® Cosmetic works

Over the years, as we repeatedly smile, frown, laugh, squint, etc. our skin naturally develops furrows, lines and wrinkles where muscle contractions have occurred. Since skin typically becomes less elastic with age, those lines become deeper and more pronounced.

Botox® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that works by relaxing the muscles that cause lines, leaving the skin smoother, tighter and wrinkle free. It’s derived from a complex protein made from the bacteria clostridium botulinum. This protein is purified 27 times before it becomes the product we know as Botox® Cosmetic.

At Rejuvenation Dermatology, we only use Botox® Cosmetic for our neuromodulator treatments.

What to expect from your treatment

Once you and Dr. Kuzel have discussed your aesthetic goals for Botox® injections, your procedure can begin.

Dr. Kuzel will disinfect the treatment area. He'll ask you to make different facial expressions, like furrowing, frowning, smiling or squinting. Next, he’ll administer very small injections to the muscle locations with a very fine microneedle. The entire procedure typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and most patients report feeling no pain at all during the injections.

Botox® injections pose few risks or side effects. However, the most common side effects include minor bruising and a bit of tenderness around the injected sites. These usually resolve within the first 24 to 48 hours. We'll send you home with tips for facial movements to help your Botox® distribute more evenly.

Results from Botox® can last anywhere from three to six months. Regular touch-up treatments may be recommended for maintenance.

About a week after your appointment, we’ll check in to and see how you’re doing. If this is your first treatment, Dr. Kuzel or his team will set a follow-up to assess your results. We’ll send you home with contact information in case you need to follow up.

What to do before your treatment

Before your visit, avoid alcohol for a day, avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen and fish oil (Omega-3’s), and Vitamin E for 10 to 14 days before and drink plenty of water. (Always discuss any history of allergies and current medications you are taking with your treatment provider.
