BOTOX® injections are the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure in the industry, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over 11 million men and women have received injections and the numbers have gone up every year since its introduction. Dr. Fulks has performed this procedure on a regular basis since Botox was introduced and has done this literally thousands of times.
Dr. Fulks personally injects each patient with careful attention to your unique anatomy. Understanding this anatomy at this level only comes from a plastic surgeon that has the experience and understanding from years of surgical experience. While there are numerous “practitioners” expressing “expertise” , few of them have the credentials to compare.
Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX® Cosmetic) is a protein complex produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which contains the same toxin that causes food poisoning. When used in a medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified botulinum toxin, small doses block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction. By selectively interfering with the underlying muscles' ability to contract, existing frown lines are smoothed out and, in most cases, are nearly invisible in a week.
