Botox® Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults. Botox® Cosmetic can erase wrinkles and smooth out your skin to help you look years younger.
How does it work?
As we age certain factors such as stress, gravity, smoking and overexposure to the sun can all impact our appearance. Overtime, facial lines slowly become etched into your skin which gives you a more aged appearance. How Botox® works is it blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Overall, you get the result of having your facial lines look visibly smoother.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
We will schedule you for a consultation to discuss your treatment needs. At the time of your appointment we will determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Some patients report that being injected with Botox® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.
It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
