Throughout our lives, we all smile, laugh, frown, squint, and make other facial expressions to help us communicate. Young, healthy skin and muscles contract to make an expression and then relax back to smooth. However, the facial can become tense from contracting, which causes lines to form on the skin over the muscle. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these are lines and creases throughout the face that can still be seen after the face relaxes. These dynamic wrinkles typically appear between the eyebrows, in the "crow's feet" at the corners of the eyes, horizontal creases on the forehead, and other areas of the face. BOTOX Cosmetic is a popular injectable wrinkle treatment that is used to temporarily relax dynamic wrinkles throughout the face for a more refreshed, youthful appearance. At Arizona Premier Surgery, we offer BOTOX Cosmetic injections to help patients in and around Chandler, Gilbert, and Scottsdale relax their dynamic wrinkles for 3 – 6 months.
"I was referred to Dr. Albert Amini following a ct scan. He professionally went over the results with me. His caring nature assured me that the results were probably non-evasive. He suggested a follow-up mri in 6 months. During my follow-up appointment, his caring professional demeanor asked me that son was alright. Dr. Amini sat with me, described the images of the mri, and gave me his professional opinion of the results of the scan."- H.F. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2018
"Dr. Amini is a fantastic surgeon. He is caring, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. He actually listens to his patients’ concerns, problems, and quality of life. Dr. Amini accessed my sister by talking to her, listening to her and doing his own hands on exam, not just basing his opinion on what was on paper. He then discussed the procedure and all possible outcomes with my sister. With this approach, he was able to help her. I would recommend him to ANY of my family and friends."- N. / Healthgrades / Feb 13, 2018
"Dr, Albert Amini saved my husband's life! Rick was diagnosed with pancreatitis because of a blockage that was finally found just above the ducts that empty into the small intestine. He was in and out of the hospital, and was seriously ill - twice at the point of not being sure he would live! All I had to do was call Dr. Amini's office sometimes within just 10 minutes, he would personally return the call, and we'd 9 times out f 10, be on our way back to another hospitalization...Dr. Amini is highly knowledgeable, and highly skilled. His patience and caring is over and above any other physician I've ever known! God lead us to this doctor, and he deserves all the kudos that can be given! Thank you so much for your helping to bring Rick back to health and living!"- S.D. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2018
"Dr. Vazquez and her staff are so personable that I felt at ease, despite the obvious apprehension that comes with being in a surgeon’s office. Dr. Vazquez took her time in speaking with me, carefully reviewing ultrasounds, radiology notes, etc. She clearly laid out treatment options. I found Dr. Vazquez to be professional, very knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring, interested and patient. She even has a nice sense of humor to help ease some anxiety. I have already recommended her to a friend!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Feb 04, 2018
"The confidence that Dr. Amini exudes is not just seen outwardly but felt inwardly. Explanations before and follow - up after surgery I rate as excellent because of how in common language Dr. Amini explained the procedure and intended results.I highly recommend he and his staff of caring and professionals."- G.S. / Healthgrades / Jan 23, 2018
Common Reasons for Treatment
Dynamic Lines and Wrinkles
Deep lines caused by facial expressions that can make a person look angry, sad, tired, or upset. BOTOX injections relax the contracted facial muscle, which allows the overlying skin to be smoother. BOTOX can be used at the earliest signs of aging to stave off the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX can also be used to improve facial symmetry by relaxing muscles, tight neck bands, and muscle spasms. Facial asymmetry may be a congenital condition or it may be caused by an accident or injury to the face.
Beyond cosmetic uses, BOTOX can also be used to treat certain medical conditions including migraine headaches and hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiration). BOTOX can also help patients with blepharospasms (eyelid spasms), cervical dystonia, some movement disorders, as well as crossed or lazy eyes.
Before their treatment, patients will discuss their concerns and goals with the doctor along with their medical history so an appropriate BOTOX treatment plan can be created. In some cases, BOTOX may be combined with Juvéderm wrinkle filler treatments for what is known as a "liquid facelift." The injections sites will be marked and cleansed before the doctor carefully injects an appropriate amount of BOTOX into the needed areas of the face. Most patients have little to no discomfort after the initial needle prick, but numbing creams can be applied to help patients feel more relaxed during their treatment.
What to Expect
BOTOX injections typically take about 30 minutes, but this will vary based on what is being treated and the number of injection sites. Performed as an outpatient procedure, patients can leave to resume their normal activities after their treatment, but they should be careful to avoid touching their face and performing strenuous activities. Patients may have some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites that typically subside 1 – 3 days after treatment. Patients should schedule a follow up appointment 2 weeks after their initial injection so the doctor can check their results and address any reactions or side effects. To maintain results, patients should schedule BOTOX treatments every 3 – 6 months.
