Tired of wrinkles in and around the eyes and brow? Want a non-surgical solution to look 2-5 years younger? BOTOX® is a popular non-surgical wrinkle treatment for men and women offered by cosmetic specialist, Dr. Greg Liebscher in Colorado Springs, CO.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a botulinum toxin that is injected to relax facial muscles that cause deep creases of the brow. It is a very safe and non-painful cosmetic procedure. Results last several months and then need to be reapplied. Compared to the cost of surgery, such as a facelift or brow lift, injectables such as BOTOX® are a less expensive treatment option for temporarily getting rid of pesky frown lines and crows feet around the eyes and brow. In some cases, BOTOX® is used to treat migraine headaches.
Always consult with a physician before undergoing BOTOX® treatment or any injectable. A physician is properly trained and experienced to monitor the dosage and side effects. And while more and more medical professionals are offering BOTOX® treatment in their clinics, trust a board-certified plastic surgeon for any cosmetic procedure. In some cases, an injectable may not be your best treatment option.
In addition to BOTOX®, we offer dermal fillers which is another injectable to restore a youthful appearance and rid stubborn facial wrinkles. Schedule an in-person cosmetic consultation with Dr. Liebscher to learn what treatment is best for you:
BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure Details
BOTOX® essentially numbs the nerves and relaxes the muscles around the eyes and brows to reduce squinting and thus, wrinkling of the skin. Botox is not a permanent solution, but offers temporary relief of wrinkles in the upper facial region.

Collagen Dermal Fillers
Another wrinkle treatment option that is similar but different to the botulinum toxin injectable is a collagen dermal filler. We carry a variety of dermal fillers to restore collagen in the face.
Collagen is a fibrous protein which forms the main foundation beneath the skill to support it and make it appear plump and healthy. It helps skin retain its strength and elasticity, preventing the formation of wrinkles. When we age collagen is lost and skin begins to sag or wrinkle. However, our skin does not age uniformly so sometimes there are areas on one side of the face that have aged more than the same area on the other side.
Collagen dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA, to treat wrinkles in the skin. The collagen is injected at the appropriate site and replaces reducing or eliminating wrinkles by firming and filling out the skin.
