Botox Cosmetic is safe, effective and affordable. After years of squinting, laughing, frowning, smoking, and worrying, the skin around the eyes, forehead and lips often develops deep expression lines and wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles make you appear older, tired or stressed. For years physicians have been using Dysport® and botox as a treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging. When considering skin rejuvenation techniques through
Botox or other means, our team of medical professionals have what it takes to deliver results. Our approach to Botox treatment is conservative and our goal is for a natural, more youthful appearance.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. For over a decade ophthalmologists have used BOTOX® Cosmetic for its original intention, the treatment of blepharospasm. Physicians have utilized BOTOX® Cosmetic for years as a cosmetic treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
The contractions and movements of the facial muscles are controlled by signals from the brain. BOTOX® Cosmetic simply prevents the muscle from responding to these messages. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin remains unwrinkled and smooth.
How long does a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment last?
The effects of Botox usually last 3 to 4 months, and fade away gradually. Following several Botox® Cosmetic treatments, the results may last 4 to 8 months or longer. BOTOX® Cosmetic offers extended relief over the course of long-term treatment.
What type of results will I see with BOTOX®?
Typically, the effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic is visible within 3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 10 to 14 days. Once the muscle relaxes and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance. Treatments are not a substitute for the results achieved with a face lift. The optimum appearance may be achieved with BOTOX® Cosmetic therapy in conjunction with a face lift, laser resurfacing, and skin rejuvenation.
