To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston, MA is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines may or may not disappear as the face relaxes. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To modify these lines, BOTOX is injected to soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed by plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.
"Let me start off by saying that I never post reviews but this Doctor definitely deserves it. I had liposuction done by him and he exceeded my expectations. So much so that I have referred many of my clients to him. My body has made a complete transformation. Dr. Del Vecchio is very honest and to the point. I first had a consultation in 2018 but didn't decide to get the procedure until this year. My only regret is not doing it sooner. His new staff is very attentive and helpful. They went out of their way to help me through the entire process from beginning to end."- A.B. / Yelp / Oct 09, 2019

"I had a bbl procedure with Dr. D in 2017 and I have to say that I absolutely love my results! He really outdid himself and I could not be happier with my results.

I love his work so much that I will be going back for a second round! Hands down one of the best in the business!!!"- S.F. / Google / Oct 04, 2019
"Dr. Daniel A. Delvecchio is the best of the best. I have had many many cosmetic surgeries with many many surgeons all around the world and so I have the experience to say he is the best. I have been to 2 of his offices, the one in NYC & Boston. They’re gorgeous & clean. To have a great doctor he must not only be experienced but intelligent & confident. Dr. D is so confident in his work & I love that. There is nothing more reassuring than knowing when you wake up you’re going to get the results you want. I read somewhere that he humiliates women? His entire office staff is women. I personally have sent SIX of my own friends and family to him as well & they have ALL been elated with their results. Anyone who speaks negatively on his name or practice is not only ignorant but they’re giving inaccurate information. If they don’t have good results it’s how their own personal body is reacting and not how his technique. I know for a fact that Dr. D travels all around the world to learn new things & is beyond informed with the latest & greatest techniques. When I did my surgery with him, he gave me his cell # & was available to me 24/7 with anything I needed. Other doctors I’ve used have passed me onto their assistants but he helped me himself. I can only speak for myself but the other 6 people that I have sent to him have their own judge of character and opinions-they have been nothing less than thrilled. You also don’t get an office on Newbury St. in Boston Mass if you are not top notch."- M.C. / Google / Sep 18, 2019
"I was browsing forever for a good BBL surgeon, I decided to go with DelVecchio and I would choose him over and over again. He is very straightforward and will not give you false expectations. I love that he works with most body shapes. I have had successfully multiple rounds with him with no problems. Any concerns I had he was quick to answer via email or text and follow up appointments. You won’t regret his work. I get compliments EVERYDAY AND I LOVE IT!"- M.M. / Google / Sep 22, 2019
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result, and it is more long-term. Back Bay Plastic Surgery offers facelifts and eyelid surgeries as great options.
BOTOX injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly at Back Bay Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit us in Boston, MA for BOTOX, we may perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities almost right away.
What to Expect
After the injection, you can resume your typical activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any severe or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Back Bay Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BOTOX cost?
Your cost for a BOTOX treatment will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio will create your personal treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce great results when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, like Dr. Del Vecchio, but it can also be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can earn points for BOTOX treatments and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm.
How long will my results last?
The results from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results, but you may want to come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule appointments further apart. After listening to your goals and creating your treatment plan, Dr. Del Vecchio will be better able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm) are both popular cosmetic treatments that decrease wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that cause wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Wrinkle fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. Depending on your goals, Dr. Del Vecchio may recommend BOTOX, injectable fillers, or a combination of both for a "liquid facelift."
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is still very important to find someone who has experience in handling this medication, like Dr. Del Vecchio. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. A skilled plastic surgeon will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, it is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical conditions, such as facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
Just Express Yourself
With BOTOX, you can laugh, smile, frown, and make any other expression you want without getting fine lines and wrinkles. To smooth and prevent lines on the face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio in Boston, MA to learn more about this amazing nonsurgical injectable. We look forward to meeting you and helping you attain your aesthetic goals.
