The prescription BOTOX® injections offer real, noticeable results without the need for surgery or recovery time. Now you can also discover the results that 11 million women and men have already experienced.
Botox®, which is already used extensively in non-cosmetic medical applications, has become extremely popular in cosmetic treatments. BOTOX® is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. These are also referred to as glabellar lines. If these lines between your brows make you look tired or old, then schedule a consultation today to see if BOTOX® is the best solution for you. These injections last up to four months and can be administered to people between the ages of 18 and 65.
BOTOX® is now used for the treatment of dynamic creases or expression lines including deep frown lines, smile lines, and squinting lines. These lines are the result of excessive muscle activity. With BOTOX®, a smoother more relaxed and more youth full expression is achieved. BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing certain muscles associated with your facial expression. BOTOX® decreases the nerve impulses to the injected muscles which reduces the muscle activity that results in moderate to severe lines to form between your brows.
While your results may vary, you may see a marked improvement within days of your injection. Your results may continue to improve for up to seven to ten days and the results can last from up to four months before requiring another BOTOX® application. Are BOTOX® Injections Painful?
There is usually minimal discomfort for a brief amount of time. In many cases, prior to injection, your health provider may choose to numb the area with either a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
How Long is the BOTOX® Procedure?
The BOTOX® injection takes minutes and you may be in and out of our office without experiencing any downtime following your BOTOX® treatment.
