No More Wrinkles
BOTOX Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults.
How Botox Works
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. We will inject these muscles with BOTOX Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity.*
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX Cosmetic feels like a pinch. We may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines results between your brows within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
The BOTOX Cosmetic treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office.*
BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic providers know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
BOTOX Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX Cosmetic a part of their normal routine in life.
Before & After Treatment
Is Botox Safe To Use?
Botox has been safely and successfully used for over 30 years. Botox is incredibly safe when administered by a skilled and licensed professional. Botox is FDA approved for use in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and recently used for many other medical conditions, such as TMJ, leaky bladder, hyperhidrosis, and migraines.
Who Is Not A Good Candidate For Botox?
Botox is NOT suitable for anyone who has any type of an infection at the proposed injection site(s). Botox is not suitable for individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the ingredients its formulation.
What Is Botox Used For?
Botox is used to temporarily soften the movement action of the muscles that cause squinting, lines and wrinkles in the face. Botox can also be used in the masseter muscles to reduce a thick jawline or TMJ tightness, in the underarms or hands to treat excessive sweating, in the neck muscles to tighten loose skin, and urologists are even using Botox for leaky bladders.
This was one of the best decisions I ever made! I felt so haggard and run down and had some major static lines on my forehead because I’m a very expressive talker, always raising my eyebrows and making facial expressions. I have had 30 units in total in my 11’s, frown lines and crow’s feet. Since having Botox I have had so many people who know me tell me I look fresher and people who don’t know me assume I am in my mid twenties. My makeup also sits nicer as it no longer cakes sitting in the creases on my forehead. If you are considering Botox do it! I won’t be looking back.*
5 years ago I had eyelid surgery and a peel around my lips. This did wonders for my appearance. I recently started noticing the frown lines between my eye brows and lines on my upper and lower lip. With a minimal injection around my brows, between my eyes, and upper and lower lips there is a great improvement to how I look and feel. I look refreshed, relaxed, and happier and in turn and I have noticed that people are nicer to me, too.*
I had done my own research before making the decision to have Botox. It was so easy, and there is minimal discomfort. I had my forehead, frown lines, and crows feet done. I saw very obvious changes within the 1st week. I am so happy with my decision, and will continue with botox. Highly recommend it!*
