Botox ™ (a purified protein produced from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria) has been used safely by ophthalmologists and neurologists for over 30 years. Botox has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s with excellent results and no serious side effects documented.
Botox injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.
A small amount of Botox Cosmetic (R) is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles. Botox effectively inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It may take a few days to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect after receiving Botox injections.
Some of the common areas treated include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.
A Botox treatment is quick and results usually last three to six months, after which a follow-up injection can be performed. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of Botox appears to last longer, often up to several months.
Botox Cosmetic (R) is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body so you can return to full activity immediately.
Botox Cosmetic (R) can be used by almost anyone. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or who have a neurologic disease should not use Botox TM.
New uses for Botox Cosmetic (R) include reduction in sweating of hands and armpits and relief of headaches.
Is it permanent?
BOTOX® Cosmetic begins to work within a few days of treatment and the effects last anywhere between three to five months. A simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the results if wished.
