BOTOX Ideal Candidates
To help in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Dr. David Yonick and Nurse Practitioner Karen are proud to offer BOTOX to local individuals. This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement from the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, we at Yonick Plastic Surgery in Midland, MI use BOTOX to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed between the eyebrows, on Crow's feet, and across the forehead.
BOTOX Procedure Technique
BOTOX is great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is longer lasting. Yonick Plastic Surgery offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as great options.

BOTOX Smile Without Worry
BOTOX treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Yonick Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit us in Midland for BOTOX, we may perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make various facial expressions with the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by gentle compressions to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Please request an ice pack or numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you are able resume to your normal routine almost right away.
What to Expect with BOTOX®
After the procedure, you may get back to your typical routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear bruised, red, or swollen for 2 – 3 days after the procedure, but you will not develop any severe or lasting side effects from injectable treatments. In many cases, it takes about two weeks before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Yonick Plastic Surgery to extend your results.
