What is Botox?
BOTOX™ is often the first product that comes to mind when we think about a cosmetic procedure. This is for good reason – BOTOX™ received its drug approval over ten years ago, and since that time has been profiled on tens of thousands of TV and newspaper stories.
BOTOX™ is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines in adults. Used in the right conditions and for the right patients, BOTOX™ has proven to be incredibly effective.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a purified protein injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles, giving your face a more refreshed appearance.
What can be treated with Botox?
Botox injections treat forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. However, Botox injections can also treat non-cosmetic issues such as:
• Blepharospasm (condition when the eyes twitch uncontrollably)
• Migraine Headaches
• Excessive sweating
What can I expect as results after my Botox procedure?
• Will see results within 24 hrs
• Patients enjoy their results for 3 – 6 months
