Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It's not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows, across your forehead and around your eyes contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
BOTOX® is a purified protein that works by blocking overactive nerve impulses that trigger excessive muscle contractions. The effect is temporary and lasts from approximately three to six months, depending on the individual patient and indication. With Botox cosmetic you will see the proven results that 11 million women and men have experienced.
With no surgery and no recovery time, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the treatment for you. It will soften the moderate to severe glabella lines between the brows, furrow lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes that can make you look tired and older.
Unlike a face or brow lift, a BOTOX® cosmetic treatment is done in the doctor's office. During the procedure the doctor will give small shots of BOTOX®Cosmetic to the patient through facial injections. Each small dose loosens the muscles in a small area. Once all of the muscles in the "trouble" area have been treated, the skin will begin to relax and wrinkles will fade away. Within days, you start seeing improvements. With a 92% satisfaction rate, chances are BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
It is important that patients schedule a consult with one of our doctors to determine whether you are a candidate for BOTOX®. The doctor will examine your ability to move certain muscles in the face area and answer questions or concerns you might have about the procedure.
