What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, particularly those between the brows and crow’s feet. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, and the #1 selling product of its kind in the entire world. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used in over 75 different countries and has over 17 years of clinical experience.
How Does it Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by targeting one of the underlying causes of wrinkles — repeated muscle contractions. Everyone makes thousands of facial expressions every day. While these facial movements are a normal part of the human experience, they can cause dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by movement, to form on the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made out of botulinum toxin, a substance that temporarily relaxes these facial muscles that are the cause of dynamic wrinkles. Also referred to as a neuromodulator, this substance reduces the activity of target facial muscles, giving your wrinkles and fine lines a chance to soften and fade.
What Cosmetic Problems can BOTOX® Cosmetic Correct?
BOTOX® Cosmetic can treat a wide variety of dynamic facial wrinkles, including
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Drooping eyelids
- Vertical lip lines
- Chin dimpling
Believe it or not, patients suffering from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can also benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. A few of these injections have been clinically proven to lessen and sometimes even eliminate the problem of excessive sweating.
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
While BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are by no means comfortable, they are significantly less painful than many other cosmetic surgeries. The injection process is also fairly quick, usually lasting no longer than 10 minutes. Once the session is complete, patients experience absolutely no downtime, so they can get back to their daily routines as soon as they leave our office!
The results of an injection session usually begin to appear 24-48 hours after treatment is complete. Because botulinum toxin is flushed from the body over time, patients that want to sustain these results need to receive additional injections every four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has brought millions of patients around the world beautiful, age defying results.
