Light Touch Minimizes Botox Side Effects



On April 5, 2015, Allure reported celebrity dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt, known as the Botox Baron, was found deceased in his Miami mansion at the age of 65. In the beauty sphere, his death made front page news as Dr. Brandt popularized the use of Botox more than anyone else.  It has been estimated as many as 70 percent of the beauty editors in New York were patients of his.  Dr. Brandt also treated Madonna and Stephanie Seymour, and many other models, actresses, and socialites.

Light Touch Minimizes Botox Side Effects

Dr. Fred Brandt believed in beauty and wanted everyone he touched to experience it for herself.  He wanted to see what the treatments would do for his patients, and he also wanted to maintain himself, so he would experiment with Botox on his own face.  He did Botox on himself twice a year and pioneered the best techniques as a result.  Most importantly, he discovered how a light touch minimizes Botox side effects. Professionally, Dr. Brandt was recognized for his light touch, and he frequently saw patients who had bad experiences with other, overzealous doctors.

The legacy left by Dr. Brandt is clear.  According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Botox has been the number 1 nonsurgical procedure since 2000.
