According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a total of 6.1 million BOTOX injections were performed in the U.S. in 2012, an increase of 8% from the previous year. The popularity of BOTOX Cosmetic is reflected at Aesthetic Surgery Center, as Dr. Fredric Newman notes, the anti-aging treatment is the most common of all injectables he offers. Although many people undergo the same procedure, patients have options to customize it more for their needs and desires.
Dr. Newman points out patients receiving follow-up treatments return to his office at varying rates. Since BOTOX Cosmetic is a temporary treatment, he recommends patients who wish to retain their positive results come in for routine injections. He points out, however, that some people come in every three months, while others may come in just once a year. Frequency of injections vary upon your personal preference.
Furthermore, patients can choose to have BOTOX Cosmetic as a standalone treatment or in addition to dermal fillers or at the time of a surgical procedure. Dr. Newman encourages patients to communicate their aesthetic goals with him, so he can recommend the proper treatment plan for optimal results.
