COSMETIC USE OF BOTOX®
It seems like everybody is talking about BOTOX® Cosmetic, the highly effective, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce your toughest wrinkles!
It’s been reported in the news, in fashion, health and beauty magazines, and on TV. Or perhaps you’ve heard about it from your friends, and you want to know more. You want the whole story before you decide if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved purified protein which in very low doses relaxes overactive facial muscles responsible for unwanted frown and other skin lines. Treatment is simple, non-surgical and helps to eliminate, correct and/ or soften the appearance of frown lines, facial wrinkles, “Crow’s feet”, between the brows “frown lines”, horizontal forehead lines, reduce muscle forces attributed to clenching/grinding, reduce “gummy” smile, and reduce smoker’s lines.
Usually you will see results as little as one to seven days and although not a permanent solution for wrinkles, BOTOX® can last up to six months.
Experienced injectors can target other areas of the face and neck as well. Injections with BOTOX® can decrease lines around upper and lower lips, raise the corners of the mouth, raise the lateral eyebrows and decrease neck bands. In addition, injections with BOTOX® can correct facial asymmetries due to single hyperactive muscles.
