Recently, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an Executive Order that lifted the state-wide mandate for masks. The order asked businesses to continue to follow CDC guidelines to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  While we respect everyone’s personal choices surrounding this matter, the nature of our work with our patients require that we work in close proximity of each other and therefore we believe it is in the best interest of our business to continue wearing masks until further notice.  We will revisit this policy once we have more time and information to evaluate the impact the executive order has on our industry and community.  In the meantime, we respectfully ask that while you are providing us the privilege of caring for you and your loved ones, that you please respect our mask policy. Masks are required on every individual in the building, covering the mouth and nose. 
We understand that this has been a trying time for all involved, and we are all ready to get back to normal as soon as possible. We are working hard to create processes that will allow us to do so shortly. We are confident that within a short time, if we can all work together, we will return to normal. We are very excited to see your smiling faces again, soon.

Freeze Wrinkles in their Tracks

Wrinkles and lines around the face can cause someone to look unnecessarily tired, angry, or older. For those not ready to commit to facial cosmetic surgery to eliminate the appearance of lines and wrinkles, injectables are a worthy alternative. One of these injectables, BOTOX® Cosmetic, has a superb track record of smoothing furrowed brows, filling in wrinkles, and ultimately revitalizing the appearance of facial skin. If you're interested in scheduling an appointment for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, please contact Phoenix surgeon Emilio M. Justo at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center.

Judy after BOTOX®

Cosmetic patient Judy is amazed by the younger appearance that Dr. Emilio Justo and his talented team has helped her achieve. He made her feel part of the family, and he took his time and explained everything to her throughout her BOTOX® injection procedure. She believes that the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center provides the best skin care of any kind she has seen.

About BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an extremely popular injectable that has been effectively treating moderate to severe facial lines for almost 20 years. It is a purified toxin that essentially freezes the muscles that cause lines in the skin. It works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, which weakens them so they cannot contract and form facial wrinkles.

Injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic may be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures or treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion for optimal rejuvenating results.

BOTOX® Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic is predominantly used to treat the frown lines between your brows, those pesky horizontal forehead lines, and the smile lines also known as crow's feet. These injections are administered during a simple treatment in our Phoenix-area offices in Sun City and Sun City West and Certified Aesthetic Laser Nurse Roxanne Dorty, R.N., will personalize a treatment program specific to your needs. Anesthesia is typically not required, though numbing cream or a ice pack may be applied to the treatment area prior to the injection. Roxanne uses a thin needle to inject the BOTOX® into specific facial muscles. She skillfully targets only certain wrinkle-producing muscles, so as to preserve your natural facial expressions. The number of injections will vary by patient and his or her particular needs. After he's done injecting the BOTOX®, you'll be able to return to your normal activities. There is no downtime or recovery period.

Results typically appear in the days immediately following BOTOX® treatment; we recommend waiting a week to see the full effect. During this time we caution patients not to rub or massage the area that was injected; this could cause the BOTOX® to migrate, affecting the overall results. Because the injections are strategically placed, any migration could cause the wrong facial muscles to weaken, causing an undesirable drooping.

After treatment, bruising or small red dots may appear on the skin. This is not abnormal, and should disappear in a few hours. It may be covered up with makeup, and soothed with a cold compress. If it doesn't, we encourage you to contact our medical team for instructions.

The results will last approximately three to four months, at which time the effects of the BOTOX® Cosmetic will fade, your muscles will begin to contract normally again, and wrinkles may start to appear again. You'll want to return for more BOTOX® injections to maintain your refreshed look!
