The Benefits of BOTOX COSMETIC® and BOTOX®:
- Relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet
- Produces quick results
- Diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by certain facial expressions.
- Can be used to reduce marionette and chin lines, and to soften neck wrinkles
- No anesthetic is needed. A microneedle is used to reduce discomfort to a minimum.
- Balances and relieves excessive or severe sweating for several months
How does it work?
Facial expressions occur when the brain sends a signal to muscle tissue. Onabotulinum Toxin BOTOX COSMETIC® (and BOTOX®) blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. This relaxes the muscles to stop them contracting, leaving the overlying skin with a smoother appearance. The treatment is precise, working only on the specific muscles injected, leaving surrounding muscles to function as usual.
How are the treatments performed?
Onabotulinum Toxin (BOTOX® & BOTOX COSMETIC®) is injected using a disposable syringe with a very fine needle. A very small amount of powder is diluted with saline and injected very precisely into several locations on the face. The treatment effects usually last for 4-6 months, 3 months for the first three visits, then the fourth visit is 4 months after the third visit. If you follow this prescribed regimen you should be able to go 5-6 months between visits long-term. Remember that you will not be “frozen” the entire time, but the muscles will be weakened, hence not breaking down collagen and elastin and deepening wrinkles to the same degree as untreated muscles.
