A Botox Cosmetic treatment is a single, non-surgical FDA-approved procedure that smooths the deep, persistent lines between the brows, crows feet around the eyes and wrinkles in the forehead that develop over time.
Botox is fast, simple and minimally invasive with no downtime or recovery. The results are dramatic and generally apparent within days.
Many men and women choose Botox Cosmetic each year to treat the first signs of aging and provide an alternative to plastic surgery. In fact, Botox Cosmetic has been the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the U.S. for many years.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick 10-minute treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.
What To Expect With Botox Treatments
Our licensed medical practitioners administer Botox treatments in our modern medical facility. Injection sites will be determined after a review of your facial muscle movements. The treatment requires no anesthesia, so you will feel minimal pain with each tiny injection of Botox into your target facial muscles. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, with no recovery time. You may experience slight localized pain, swelling, or inflammation, which you can treat with a cold compress or simply wait a short time to subside. You can expect to be in and out of the office quickly, with no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Your Improved Look After Botox
Within a few days of your first Botox treatment, you will begin to notice a reduction in your dynamic facial wrinkles, and you will continue to see improvement over the next two to three weeks. Dynamic wrinkles will gradually become less noticeable because Botox immobilizes the muscles that cause them. You can expect results to last approximately three months, after which time you will need to schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain your results.
