Botox is administered in a simple 10-minute treatment. Very low doses of Botox is administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines and wrinkles. By blocking the release of the chemical that causes these muscles to contract, Botox will enable them to relax, so the skin appears smoother.
Both botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein, that is administered in a simple, nonsurgical procedure to temporarily reduce moderate to severe wrinkles between the brows, forehead and around eyes. Wrinkles appear as a result of powerful muscle contractions that linger after the muscle is relaxed or with sun damage.
Since the procedure is non-surgical, no recovery time is needed, and patients can return to work or other activities immediately.
Immediate results in one treatment – No downtime – Non-permanent
Who are the best candidates for this procedure?
Botox is a good choice for those who may be concerned that their frown lines between the brows make them look tired, stressed, or angry.
Is there recovery time?
Often called a lunchtime procedure, treatment is brief and requires no recovery. Localized tenderness, redness, bruising may be associated with the injection. Patients are asked not to lay down flat for at least 4 hours or exercise the day of injection.
How long does Botox last?
You will see results within 1-5 days that typically last up to 4 months. Results may vary — be sure to ask what to expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve had work done. The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
