What is Botox Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults!
WHAT ARE BOTOX INJECTIONS?
It is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults! This treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime, which our patients love! And the injections last anywhere from three to four months.
It’s injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore reduce its ability to contract, and form unsightly wrinkles.
WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
Because it specifically targets facial muscles, it tends to be recommended for dynamic wrinkles, the lines that form with certain facial expressions.
Treatment areas include:
• Horizontal creases across the forehead
• Vertical lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
• Subtle lines that feather out from the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
• Horizontal wrinkles at the top of the nasal bridge (bunny lines)
• An upper lip that exposes the gums above the teeth (gummy smile)
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
It works as a shield between the brain and the muscle so that muscles stay still and will erase the signs of aging on your face and body by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles in the body or by blocking nerves. After it is injected, the results are almost immediate!
It also release’s tension in your muscles by relieving strain on the nervous systems, which will lessen the pain of migraines. The injections are also effective in stopping the production of sweat by inhibiting the chemical acetylcholine, which will stimulate the sweat glands. It will not only make you look years younger, but it will also help with your health.
