Visiting a facial cosmetic surgeon for a BOTOX® treatment in Lee's Summit will allow you to benefit from, what some are calling, a miracle drug.

Dr. Prstojevich has been offering a BOTOX® treatment in Lee's Summit for years and patients are thrilled with the results. The best way to find out if BOTOX® treatment will work for you is to schedule a consultation. Before you come in, it can help to understand what BOTOX® is and how it helps other patients to look their very best.
A variety of uses
Labs create BOTOX® from a neurotoxin. It is found naturally when the bacterium, clostridium botulinum, is present. Also known as botulinum toxin, it can develop in food that has gone bad. This is not the first time that an important medical discovery was made from something naturally-occurring. For example, penicillin comes from the mold, Penicillium Notatum. This mold happened to contaminate Petri dishes in the lab of Dr. Fleming and prevented the normal growth of staphylococci (staph). Now a common antibiotic, the medical community uses penicillin to treat a variety of illnesses. Similarly, BOTOX® effectively helps patients achieve the appearance they desire.
Upon injection into the facial muscles, BOTOX® causes a temporary paralysis so that the muscles can no longer contract like they once did. Since contracting muscles underneath the skin cause wrinkles, BOTOX® prevents the appearance of wrinkles and gives patients a more youthful appearance. The results can be stunning and last for months. Depending on the severity of the wrinkles, one may need to visit our office twice a year, while some patients only need to visit us once. The only way to tell for sure is to have a treatment and monitor your appearance as time goes by. While the effects are not permanent, having regular BOTOX® injections are affordable and easy. This is entirely non-surgical so one does not have any of the risks associated with traditional plastic surgery. Still, the results are impressive.
