BOTOX is the most requested medical cosmetic procedure available today. If you have deep frown lines on your forehead, between your eyebrows (glabellar lines), or at the sides of your eyes (crow’s feet), BOTOX can minimize the appearance of those lines and provide you with a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
The administration of BOTOX consists of injecting small amounts of the mild toxin into the muscles causing deep facial lines. These muscles are habitually contracted due to years of clenching and relaxing to form various expressions. BOTOX dampens nerve impulses, allowing these muscles to relax. You may experience slight irritation or redness but may return to your regular lifestyle immediately. Most patients do not require pain medication, though some may experience mild discomfort at the injection site.
The benefits of BOTOX should last for about six months, though you may experience benefits for a slightly longer or shorter period.
You may repeat treatment whenever lines and wrinkles again become prominent.
No downtime. Patients can immediately resume normal activities.
Total treatment time is about 10-15 minutes, depending on the patient.
The results of BOTOX injections usually takes effect in five to seven days.
