Botox for Wrinkles

Cosmetic medicine

Individual results may vary

Over time, your face may develop harsh lines such as scowl lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. These lines deepen and worsen with age, but treating them with FDA-approved BOTOX® prevents small muscle contractions and temporarily softens the lines. BOTOX® can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, palms, and soles. Additionally, BOTOX® has been shown to help with migraine pain.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a purified protein found in nature. Although BOTOX® is a toxin, there have been no serious side effects when used correctly for cosmetic purposes. BOTOX® has been used for years to treat various medical conditions, especially around the eyes.

How BOTOX® works:

  • BOTOX® relaxes overactive facial muscles and stops the muscles from contracting. This prevents the facial muscles from forming dynamic lines that occur when you smile or frown.
  • A few drops of BOTOX® are injected into the muscle that creates a line or wrinkle. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the muscle and the muscle relaxes.
  • As the muscle relaxes, the skin overlying the muscle softens and the wrinkles in the skin diminish and disappear.

What type of improvement will I see?

Within a few days following treatments, facial lines will soften. With repeated treatments, the lines can disappear. BOTOX® for face wrinkles treatment may yield dramatic results and usually last 3 to 6 months. Timing is important with BOTOX® treatments – you may get longer lasting results, it’s important to get subsequent treatments before facial muscle activity returns.

A great BOTOX® clinician will make you look younger and healthier in a more natural way.
