BOTOX
The millions of patients who have received BOTOX injections and their doctors agree that BOTOX is safe and highly effective in treating dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines and crow's feet. For men and women BOTOX® Cosmetic can produce results that look natural, yet still have the desired effect on wrinkles and furrows.

BOTOX injections are best performed by experienced and skilled injectors. Dr. Prasad Kilaru’s injection technique has evolved to produce extremely gratifying results for patients. Furthermore, Dr. Kilaru emphasizes individualized treatment tailored to each patient's specific needs rather than using a standardized approach. While this technique requires more attention, time, and skill on the part of the surgeon, it ensures that each patient receives the best results possible with the fewest risks or complications.

Why BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX is a safe, simple, nonsurgical treatment to reduce dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by muscle contraction) such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet. Dr. Kilaru has also used BOTOX for elimination of underarm and palm sweating. This treatment has been quite helpful for those individuals who are embarrassed shaking hands or raising their arms because of excess sweating. BOTOX can even be used sparingly under the outside edge of the eyebrow to give it a nice, non surgical elevation.

The BOTOX Procedure
Botox injections are simply that – a series of targeted injections administered during an outpatient office visit. No sedation or local anesthetic is required. The side effects, which most commonly involve bruising at the injection site, are minimal and temporary. BOTOX requires no down time so you may return to your normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to work.

Showing Off Your New Look
Results are typically visible in five to seven days but may appear earlier. The improvement made with BOTOX will usually last three to four months or, occasionally, even longer. Your BOTOX injections will result in smoother, younger-looking skin free of dynamic wrinkles. Dr. Kilaru has extensive experience and training in working with BOTOX, so you do not need to worry about looking "frozen." Your results will look beautiful and natural.

If you are interested in a more permanent way to reduce the signs of aging, Dr. Prasad Kilaru also performs surgical procedures such as face lift or forehead lift.
