BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes in people from 18 – 65 years of age. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA.
Botox® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance. One 10-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – and within days there’s a noticeable improvement! You will often hear people say how “rested” you look!
Reasons for Considering a Botox Treatment:
Excessive facial wrinkles.
Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. A cream with local anesthetic will be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of the Botox® treatment. Typically a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of Botox® is injected into the area of the wrinkle.
Botox® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a Botox® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.
Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, however following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period.
Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
The first step towards a beautiful, healthy look is to schedule a Complimentary Consultation.
