Botox Cosmetic was introduced in 2002 and has been used in 11.8 million procedures. Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved and is most commonly used for medical cosmetic treatment. Our professional medical team uses Botox Cosmetic to lift and shape the brow area, to eliminate or soften lines on the forehead, and also to help with “crows feet”, frown lines, sad lines, lines around the eyes, dimpled chins, and fine lines around the lips.
How it Works:
Anytime you make a facial expression, your muscles under the skin will contract. The constant muscle movement draws the skin together and over time causes the skin to become less elastic. This often results in frown lines and wrinkles. When Botox targets these specific areas, it blocks the nerve impulses from activating the muscles making the appearance of the skin above to be relaxed. In some cases with repeated treatments, the wrinkles can disappear.
What is it:
BotoxCosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows of individuals 18-65 years of age. Botox should be administered by a healthcare professional and is a simple non-surgical treatment.
Causes for Aging Skin:
Aging skin can result from cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, and damage caused by free radicals and excessive sun exposure. Botox Cosmetic helps to slow down the appearance of aging skin by softening the fine lines and wrinkles.
What to Expect:
The Botox Cosmetic treatments are quick and virtually painless. Most people do not require any topical anesthesia, however, the area can be numbed with anesthetic cream or a cold pack prior to treatment. The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and requires no recovery time, so you can even schedule an appointment during your lunch hour. You can resume most normal activities immediately after. Results may vary in some individuals, but most people can see an improvement within 3-5 days. The effect will usually last up to four months. Repeated treatments can lead to longer-lasting effects. You can receive injections every three to four months as long as you don’t have any serious allergic reactions or other significant side effects.
