Botox is a popular skin-rejuvenation treatment that reduces early signs of skin aging. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery North Shore, Dr. Anoush Hadaegh provides Botox treatment in North Shore, MA, to treat fine facial lines and wrinkles.
What Is Botox?
Aging, gravity, stress, and other factors are common causes of facial lines and wrinkles. However, fine lines and wrinkles also frequently develop through repetitive muscle contraction. These are known as dynamic lines or expression lines. When it comes to treating these expression lines, Botox is highly effective.
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable product used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure that smooths out dynamic lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet.
Botox can be used in various facial areas, including the forehead, chin, around the eyes, and between the brows. However, it is not suitable for treating moderate to harsh midface lines.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A. Neuromodulators block the nerve signals that cause muscle contraction. By injecting Botox into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals, allowing stiff muscles to return to their ideal resting state. This results in the reduction of dynamic lines in the skin.
Patients with shallow facial lines and wrinkles due to muscle contraction are the best candidates for Botox treatment. Candidates must have realistic expectations and must not be allergic to Botox. Candidates who are willing to follow skincare recommendations can delay the future effects of skin aging.
Patients with moderate to severe facial wrinkles should consider other skin-rejuvenation treatments like dermal fillers. A consultation is necessary to determine if a patient is suitable for Botox.
During your consultation with Dr. Hadaegh, he will listen to your facial skin concerns and goals. He will perform a skin examination to assess your facial lines and wrinkles.
If you are suitable for Botox injections, Dr. Hadaegh will create a personalized treatment plan. He will explain all details of the plan, including preparation, aftercare, and your potential results. Any questions you may raise during the consultation will be answered by Dr. Hadaegh.
Your Botox Session
The Botox session can be done within 20 minutes. The treatment area will be cleansed, and then the injection sites will be marked. A topical anesthetic may be administered for the patient’s comfort. Dr. Hadaegh will then administer controlled amounts of Botox into the injection sites.
The patient can go home right after the Botox session. No recovery process will be necessary. Dr. Hadaegh will give aftercare instructions to the patient. Minor bruising or swelling may be experienced. Rubbing or massaging the injection sites will be prohibited for at least four hours after treatment.
The patient can start seeing the results within three to five days. Full results can be expected after ten days and will last within three to four months. Maintenance treatment will be necessary to prolong the results.
The price of Botox injections will be based on the number of units of Botox used during treatment. Maintenance treatments can also affect the total cost of Botox.
Dr. Hadaegh excels at creating a rejuvenated but not “frozen” look for people with Botox injections. He’s a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of experience in facial rejuvenation, and extensive knowledge and skill specifically related to injecting Botox.
His eye for detail, understanding of facial structure and balance, and experience as a surgeon, set him apart as a premier Botox injector. Combine that with Dr. Hadaegh’s genuine desire to help patients achieve their aesthetic and anti-aging goals, and it’s easy to see why countless people keep coming back to Aesthetic Plastic Surgery North Shore for Botox injections, sometimes traveling 2 hours. We look forward to you being one of them!
