What can BOTOX Cosmetic do for me?
BOTOX Cosmetic ensures that looking your best means not relying on foundations that require constant reapplication or your bangs to cover those unsightly forehead wrinkles. It also means not subjecting yourself to unnecessary cosmetic surgery and the subsequent recuperation period. BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles of the forehead, crow’s feet, and other facial areas. Its effects include improvement of wrinkles of the forehead, between the brows, crow’s feet, and bunny lines. In some patients, it may also provide a lift to the brows, eyelids, and pick up the corners of the droopy sides of the mouth. BOTOX Cosmetic is appropriate for individuals between the ages of 18 and 65, and its effects are temporary initially but have shown degrees of permanence after sequential treatments space 3 months apart.
How does BOTOX work?
The way BOTOX Cosmetic works is simple. The BOTOX molecule blocks nerve impulses to the muscles that have been injected, thereby reducing the activity of those muscles. It is this muscle activity in the face that causes wrinkles, so by reducing this activity, the face is given a younger, lifted, more carefree appearance. The best thing about BOTOX is that its results are very real and noticeable, yet no recovery time is needed. You get your BOTOX injection, and as soon as you have emerged from our office, you are ready to go about your day.
Around 11.8 million procedures involving BOTOX cosmetic have been performed in the United States since the procedure was first popularized in 2002. Surveys have shown a 97% satisfaction rate with the results of the procedure as women reported a more youthful, rested appearance, innumerable compliments on their looks, and more confidence in front of cameras, strangers, and in social situations. People will notice, but they won’t quite know exactly what you did because the results are natural.
