Botox® is a purified protein preparation that is used to soften or eliminate facial lines that develop from use of underlying facial muscles. After injection, the muscles relax, giving the overlying skin a smooth, unwrinkled appearance. Botox® does not affect untreated muscles, so normal facial expression is not affected. A single Botox® injection generally provides a beneficial effect for three to six months. Patient satisfaction after Botox® injections is extremely high.
The repeated movement of facial muscles can create lines on the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth. These can cause a worried, tired, or angry appearance, even when you feel well, and can even affect the way others interact with you at work and home. Fortunately, an effective, safe, non-surgical treatment for these lines is now available.
You laugh. You frown. You concentrate. And over time, those expressions leave their mark upon your face. Until today, there wasn’t a lot you could do about it.
But today there’s Botox Cosmetic. A simple, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce even your toughest wrinkle within days. One ten-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – relaxes the muscles in your face that cause lines to form. And keeps them relaxed for months. Botox Cosmetic has been widely tested. And now it’s approved by the FDA.
How Does it Work?
Botox Cosmetic is a naturally occurring, purified protein. When injected in tiny amounts into muscles, it allows them to relax. Botox has been used for years to treat medical problems such as muscle spasms of the face and neck, migraine headaches and double vision. Most recently, the FDA approved its use for treatment of certain unsightly facial creases. Botox relaxes the muscles naturally. Within a few days, and for months afterwards, the facial creases that can make you look tense or aged have visibly smoothed. And because Botox Cosmetic doesn’t involve any surgical incisions, you can return to full activities immediately.
Is Botox painful?
Because the amount of Botox injected at each location miniscule, discomfort is minimal. Various methods numb the treatment area, including topical anesthetic creams and ice. Most patients compare the sensation to a mild bug bite, and are usually surprised at how little discomfort they experience.
Is Botox expensive?
Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, Botox is amazingly affordable.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair the effects of aging and sun exposure on facial skin. A device like a fine sandblaster is used to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
