Over time, your face may develop harsh lines such as scowl lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. These lines deepen and worsen with age, but treating them with FDA-approved BOTOX® prevents small muscle contractions and temporarily softens the lines. BOTOX® can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, palms, and soles. Additionally, BOTOX® has been shown to help with migraine pain.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a purified protein found in nature. Although BOTOX® is a toxin, there have been no serious side effects when used correctly for cosmetic purposes. BOTOX® has been used for years to treat various medical conditions, especially around the eyes.
How BOTOX® works:
- BOTOX® relaxes overactive facial muscles and stops the muscles from contracting. This prevents the facial muscles from forming dynamic lines that occur when you smile or frown.
- A few drops of BOTOX® are injected into the muscle that creates a line or wrinkle. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the muscle and the muscle relaxes.
- As the muscle relaxes, the skin overlying the muscle softens and the wrinkles in the skin diminish and disappear.
What type of improvement will I see?
Within a few days following treatments, facial lines will soften. With repeated treatments, the lines can disappear. BOTOX® for face wrinkles treatment may yield dramatic results and usually last 3 to 6 months. Timing is important with BOTOX® treatments – you may get longer lasting results, it’s important to get subsequent treatments before facial muscle activity returns.
A great BOTOX® clinician will make you look younger and healthier in a more natural way.
