Botox Cosmetic Treatments
Millions of women and men have experienced the real, noticeable results of BOTOX® Cosmetic. You can too!
Soften crow’s feet and reduce those stubborn frown lines that make you look tired or upset… without surgery or any down time. Forehead lines (horizontal) bunny lines (nasal bridge) elevens (glabella) and jaw line (masseter) can all be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, palm of the hand and feet.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein that has a better safety record than the common aspirin. Since the FDA approved BOTOX® in 2002, over 11 million women have been treated making it the number one cosmetic product in the US today.
BOTOX® has been used for medical purposes for over 20 years, and was originally used to treat muscle spasms. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic was first injected into the eye muscles to correct strabismus.(crooked eye alignment). It was then that it was discovered that the relaxation of the forehead muscles that caused eye twitching had an unintended consequence. It smoothed the appearance of the forehead.
When opthamologists found that using BOTOX® in the forehead to prevent eye twitching actually smoothed away wrinkles, the modern version of BOTOX® Cosmetic was born.
Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is used both as correct and preventative measures. Relaxing the muscles causes the wrinkles you have now to decrease/soften. Relaxing the muscles now also prevents wrinkles from increasing because you won’t be using that muscle as often. Xeomin and Dysport are similar neurotoxins. Botox is also used in the treatment of migraine headaches and cervical dystonia. (Tight neck muscles that limit mobility)
Botox injections usually take three to seven days to reach their full effect. The result is smoother skin in the treated area. As the muscles slowly regain the ability to contract, lines and wrinkles reappear. To maintain the desired effect, injections should be repeated every four to six months.
