If fine lines and wrinkles are your concern, we offer Botox® Cosmetic which has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002. Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most effective, widely used and successful treatments for temporarily softening of unwanted wrinkles of the forehead, crow’s feet, between the eyebrows and fine lines surrounding the mouth. We also offer Botox® Cosmetic treatments for excessive sweating called Hyperhidrosis.What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
When will I see results from a Botox® Cosmetic treatment? Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles in treated areas. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
Is treatment with Botox® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, we offer to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 15-20 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office without downtime following Botox® Cosmetic treatment.
Possible side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, temporary redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.
How does Botox® Cosmetic work?
Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines and wrinkles to form in treated areas. 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. Facial wrinkles and lines result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles cause your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
