BOTOX AND DYSPORT
Dr. Hoenig has successfully performed thousands of BOTOX® injections over the past 25 years for cosmetic enhancement of the face, as well as for treatment of migraine, blepharospasm, facial spasm, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
For aesthetic purposes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabella lines (frown lines between the eyebrows), forehead, lines, and crow’s feet. Using his advanced knowledge of facial anatomy, Dr. Hoenig also is able to perform BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments into less common sites to create a mini-browlift, reduce lip lines, relax vertical neck muscle bands, or to aesthetically improve other features of the face.
BOTOX® injections, a simple and non-surgical procedure whereby very low doses of a natural purified protein are placed into specific muscles, relaxes the muscles and prevents contraction. BOTOX® injections create only minimal and temporary discomfort, which is greatly reduced by the use of a topical numbing cream. The procedure takes 5 to 10 minutes, and you can return to work or daily activities immediately. Results of BOTOX® injections are noticeable in a few days, and last for several months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments for aesthetic enhancement are not covered by insurance. In some cases, medical insurance will pay for part or all of the costs of functional BOTOX® treatments if the condition to be treated is considered reconstructive, disabling or interferes significantly with the quality of your life.
Migraine Treatments – By relaxing the muscles in the face and neck that press on nerves, BOTOX® injections can successfully treat a majority of patients suffering from migraine headaches. In fact, in clinical studies nearly 18% of patients that received the placebo (injection without medicine) complained of headaches, compared to only 13% of patients receiving BOTOX® treatments.
Hyperhidrosis Treatments – Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the face, palms, underarms, or feet can be inconvenient and embarrassing, and may portray anxiety, worry, or lack of confidence. BOTOX® treatments are effective in limiting the over-secretion of the sweat glands.
