Facial Shaping with BOTOX® Cosmetic Performed at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples

Naples Daily News, Health Services - May, 24 2003

In the field of plastic surgery, there is a trend toward less invasive procedures. Patients want real results with minimal recovery time. Kent V. Hasen, M.D. has been at the forefront of non-invasive procedures like non-ablative lasers, particulate-free microdermabrasion and injectable fillers. Over the past few years, the most frequently sought after minimally invasive cosmetic treatment has become BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples, BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to do more than merely soften wrinkles. Hasen uses his expert knowledge of facial anatomy and the intricate balance of the facial muscles to help shape his patient's face with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

When Botulinum toxin A (BOTOX® Cosmetic) was first used in cosmetic patients, the goal was to simply wipe out the muscles that cause wrinkling, Hasen says. However, an unnatural, mask-like appearance can occur with this older injection technique. Hasen understands that by selectively targeting muscles that act on certain structures of the face and neck, he can change the shape and position of these landmarks. "A 'chemical' brow lift can be achieved by weakening the lateral eye brow depressors, allowing the muscle that elevates the brow to gently raise its position," Hasen said. "Similarly, asymmetries in the position of the eye brows can be made more even with selective injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic."

Hasen has even had success in helping raise the corner of the mouth of patients who unintentionally appear to be frowning by selectively injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the strong depressors of the mouth.

Hasen works closely with his expert medical aesthetician, Elise Adelman, to make the BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments as comfortable as possible. The treatment is done in the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples office with a spa-like feel for comfort.
