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.
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.
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.
Side Effects Of BOTOX®
- Droopy eyelid
