If wrinkles aren’t your thing, BOTOX® may be just what you need!
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription drug that can temporarily enhance the complexion of the skin, creating a more youthful appearance.
What Issues Can BOTOX® Treat?
BOTOX® can temporarily treat:
- fine lines
- crow’s feet
- frown lines
- bunny lines
- forehead creases.
BOTOX® can also be used to treat a variety of other conditions including facial asymmetries, tension headaches, and excessive sweating.
How is Botox®Performed?
Using a very fine needle, BOTOX® is injected directly into facial muscles that are causing wrinkles and lines. Receiving BOTOX® injections requires no anesthetic, but some doctors choose to numb the area to be injected with ice packs or topical anesthetic cream to minimize any discomfort.
What Results Can I Expect from Botox?
Results can usually be seen within a few days of treatment, and typically last up to four months, although areas that are treated on a regular basis may retain results longer. Injections should be given only by qualified medical professionals.
Are There Side Effects to Botox?
- Droopy eyelid
- Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site.
