Bring out your natural radiance and one-of-a-kind beauty with Botox® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a “technique-specific” procedure. That means the results from treatment depend heavily on the skill of the person applying it. Patients travel from across the globe to the office of Kirwan Plastic Surgery in Norwalk, Connecticut. So, you have peace of mind that your appearance following treatment with this injectable will look natural, like yourself but more well-rested. You won’t look “different” or like you’ve “had work done.” Additionally, our expertise ensures that risks are minimized. Treatment is well-tolerated, and you can go about your day immediately afterward.

An introduction to Botox®

A prescription medication, Botox®, is indicated for the improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as crow’s feet around the eyes and horizontal forehead lines. Just the right amount of Botox® is injected into the specific muscles responsible for these expression lines. As a category of cosmetic injectable products, neuromodulators like Botox® work by blocking nerve impulses. When injected precisely into the right muscles, their activity is reduced. Expression lines are softened because the muscles remain relaxed. 

When in the highly skilled and experienced hands of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Laurence Kirwan, Botox® may also be administered to:

  • Slim the jawline by relaxing the masseter muscle
  • Lift the corners of the mouth 
  • Soften the neck bands below the chin
  • Elevate the tip of the nose 
  • Improve the appearance of the “bunny lines” on the nasal bridge
  • Flip the upper lip 
  • Soften lines in the lower eyelid 
  • Reduce the appearance of chin dimples 

While Dr. Kirwan’s global reputation as a surgeon precedes him, he is happy to provide an array of nonsurgical alternatives to his valued patients for aesthetic improvement. Generally, these alternatives are associated with fewer risks of undesirable side effects and complications. They are also appealing because there are fewer demands on the body and one’s schedule for preparation, healing, and recovery. Notably, Botox® is a true lunchtime treatment. Injections can be completed quickly. They are tolerated well by most patients with little more than a localized anesthetic. We can discuss any concerns you may have over comfort. 

Results from Botox® also typically persist for around three to six months. Dr. Kirwan will work with you to get you on a schedule of “maintenance” treatments. It has been reported by some physicians that the effects of Botox® are sustained for much longer with repeated treatment sessions or injections. So, over the long term, it may take fewer follow-up injections to maintain your stunning yet natural-looking results. 

Millions of Botox® treatments are performed each year. But is Botox® Cosmetic right for you? Schedule a consultation at Kirwan Plastic Surgery in Norwalk, Connecticut, today to find out. Our team can be reached at (203) 838-8844.
