WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified biological protein that is a FDA approved treatment that is used to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines, lip lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines around the eyes. It’s has a history of being the #1 selling treatment of its kind with its results being subtle and reliable. A treatment can take as little as 10 minutes with minimal downtime and results may be noticed within 24 to 48 hours.
HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?
There are a number of reasons for why facial lines may occur. There are more than just the reasons of cellular alterations, collagen reduction, or damage caused by the environment such as the sun. Repeated muscle contractions from squinting, raising your eyebrows, and frowning are also reasons that facial lines may arise.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works below the surface and temporarily decreases the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe facial lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
ARE BOTOX® COSMETIC INJECTIONS PAINFUL?
Many patients who receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections state that the injections feel like a pinch and the treatment sessions are quick and tolerable. The use of ice to numb the treatment area is common to minimize any discomfort. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment may be applied.
