BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedures in Algonquin and the Fox River Region

Are you concerned about deepening frown lines between the eyes? Have you noticed wrinkles appearing on the forehead, between or at the corners of the eyes? Then the non- invasive BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure may be just right for you. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most widely known, FDA approved and accepted treatment to diminish these problems. This procedure is performed for people in Algonquin and the Fox River Valley region by certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gunnar Thors with very natural results.

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases and crows feet near the eyes. Prepared on the day of your BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure by Dr. Thors at his plastic surgery center in Algonquin, the toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

Patients may seek BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment with Dr. Thors for some of the following reasons:

  • To relax wrinkles of the forehead, and “crows feet” at the outer eye
  • To give the face a more relaxed and youthful appearance
  • To relax frown lines and wrinkles between the eyes
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quickly performed and easily renewed procedure

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by weakening the muscles of facial expression. Once the resting tone of the treated muscles is weakened, the pull of the muscles relaxes and the overlying skin flattens. This approach is different from other non-surgical procedures for the face. Other non-surgical procedures work by filling wrinkles or depressions. By physiologically weakening the muscles, wrinkles are lessened naturally.

During your consultation with Dr. Thors he will discuss with you the best approach to achieving your goals using BOTOX® Cosmetic or one of the other non-invasive procedures at which he is equally skilled. It is Dr. Thors’s goal to build rapport and trust with each patient so that you can reach your optimum and most natural result.
