What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a highly diluted and refined form of the botulinum toxin type A. This treatment is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a cosmetic treatment for lines and wrinkles in the face. Though originally developed as a therapeutic medication, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into targeted areas to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles. The medication works by blocking the nerve transmitters to the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing creases and wrinkles to develop.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is generally used to lessen wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes, the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), and around the lips in patients over the age of 18. There are certain alternative uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic that may be of great benefit to you, and our doctors and staff can discuss your treatment goals and desired results to see if you are a candidate.
Receiving BOTOX® injections is a quick and easy procedure. You will discuss the problem areas you wish to target with our team and determine the appropriate treatment for your needs. We will carefully administer the injections, and you will be able to leave our office in under an hour. Treatment involves minimal discomfort, and no anesthesia is needed. However, we can apply topical anesthetic if you desire.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a convenient cosmetic treatment that you can easily fit into your schedule. There is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure.
There are very low risks of side effects with BOTOX® injections. However, you may experience some mild numbness, tingling, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites. It typically takes about 10 days to see your full results, and the effects will last about four months. BOTOX® treatment is very safe, and you can regularly repeat the procedure to maintain optimal results.
Our team of doctors has years of experience working with the overall facial anatomy. They can ensure that your results are highly natural, and complement your overall facial features.
