We have been using Botox in Los Angeles for over 20 years. Since its 2002 FDA approval for cosmetic use, we have seen a dramatic increase in interest in botox. We are now using Botox not only for glabellar furrows (frown lines) but also for forehead lines, crow’s feet lines and some lines around the lower face. Botox can also be used to decrease excessive sweating in the underarms and palms. Dr. Wieder is also using Dysport, another form of botulinum toxin which has been safely used in Europe for many years. Other forms of botulinum toxin will become available in the near future. These products will allow us to further fine tune our treatments and perhaps, prolong their effect.
Dr. Wieder has been invited to lecture on the safe and proper use of Botox at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meetings in 2008 and 2009. Dr. Wieder has been appointed to the Botox Cosmetic NEF (National Education Foundation), providing educational opportunities nationwide for others to learn proper injection technique. He also has been recognized as a Gold level member with the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network based on his skills and number of patients he has treated.
