This is an FDA-approved treatment by injection of a small
amount of a purified protein derived from botulinum toxin
into the muscles underneath wrinkles or frown lines.
This procedure weakens and relaxes the muscle so that functional
lines and wrinkles gradually resolve. The procedure takes
effect after about three to seven days. The improvement
then lasts for about three to six months. Eventually
after multiple treatments, longer-lasting results will remain,
requiring fewer treatments to maintain results. The
net effect is a more youthful, rested and relaxed appearance.
It is possible to accomplish a brow lift with the use of
Botox. Also, glabella and forehead lines and crow’s
feet respond very well to Botox injections, and to lines
around the mouth and drooping mouth corners. The procedure
takes only a few minutes and requires little to no downtime.
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain…even when your muscles aren’t contracting. The moderate to severe frown lines between your brows that form are often referred to as your 1’s and may make you look angry and unapproachable. Botox Cosmetic can give you real, noticeable results whether you have one moderate to severe frown line between the brows (1’s) or two (11’s), or even three (111’s). Ask us if Botox cosmetic is right for you.
As with any medical treatment, there could be complications from this procedure, the most common being eyelid drooping. We invite you to consult with any of the members of our staff for further information.
