When Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, began practicing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more than 25 years ago, Botox and other injectable fillers were barely in experimental phases and intensive drug research and development. Botox quickly emerged and is still the most popular injectable in cosmetic surgery. Today, there are many options for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments, but the numbers tell a story: Botox is the most popular. Dr. Oldham administers Botox for male and female patients alike, offering payment packages and convenient late afternoon hours.
In the history of skin enhancement treatments, Botox is by far the most recognized name among other market products. As early as 1950, it was found that the substance today-known as Botox was capable of blocking neuromuscular transmissions, that is, it discourages muscular movement. Less than 30 years later, researchers found it could be used to discourage the same repeated muscle movements in the face that case deep lines and wrinkles later in life. Botox is now used as much for prevention of the development of wrinkles as it is for treatment to rid the face of existing fine lines. The first cosmetic application of Botox was used for the wrinkles of the brow, between the eyebrows. Use has since expanded. Particularly effective today is the use of Botox for nasolabial lines, or the “parentheses” that form around the mouth, extending from the nose to the chin. Look for the signs of change in these images before and after Botox injections with Dr. Oldham.
