Botox® Cosmetic: Ten Minutes to Smoother Skin!
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that reduces the activity of the muscles which cause frown lines and crow’s feet, as well as lines on the forehead. Botox® significantly repairs deep lines and wrinkles (visible signs of stress and aging) due to squinting, laughing, frowning, smoking, and anxiety. Wrinkles crop up with the repeated use of facial muscles, so the injection is into targeted muscles with a fine needle and simply inactivates those muscles that produce wrinkles. This simple, non surgical, physician-administered treatment, can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines and forehead lines when injected in small doses. Botox® is the fastest growing anti-wrinkle treatment available and since its FDA approval in 2002, it has become the most popular of these anti-wrinkle treatments.
What about my "Angry 11's"?
If you're looking for something for that one tough wrinkle spot, the area between your brows, sometimes referred to as "Angry 11's", this 10-minute treatment of a few small injections will result in a noticeable improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within days. While the duration of these results may vary, they generally last up to 4 months. Botox® Cosmetic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
How long does the treatment take?
The actual Botox® treatment typically takes approximately 10 minutes, not including time spent with Physician. It is not necessary to anesthetize the area to be treated due to minimal discomfort, although we can use a topical anesthetic to reduce any discomfort associated with the procedure on request. Botox® is injected into the area affected by visible lines with a very thin needle. The Botox® causes the muscles initiating the lines and wrinkles to relax which reduces the appearance of undesirable wrinkles and lines on the skin. The skin's reaction to the muscles is what commonly causes wrinkles.
How long does a Botox® Cosmetic treatment last?
The results of the Botox® Cosmetic treatment may be seen in as little as 10 days following treatment. Results will last from 3 to 4 months before they begin to gradually fade away. Your next treatment should be scheduled before the effects completely fade away. Over time, with the use of Botox® Cosmetic, you will need to be treated less often, with less Botox®.
