Botox is the #1 non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the world used primarily to soften or eliminate forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. Facial muscles are used to smile, frown or allow any facial expression and this muscle activity contributes to your facial lines and wrinkles. Facial lines often commence as dynamic lines and deepen becoming static lines which, over time, create permanent furrows. Once the muscles are relaxed, lines and wrinkles smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
Botox is a neuromodulator that when injected into the facial muscle, temporarily relaxes it to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Botox delivers dramatic results in eliminating wrinkles in the forehead, nose and eyes, and can also be used to prevent the mouth from pulling down and reduce or remove neck wrinkles and neck bands.
Botox delivers dramatic results with few side effects and no downtime, which makes Botox the perfect choice for men and women looking to create a more relaxed and youthful glow. The effects can be seen in 3 days but usually occur by day 10 to 14. You will find the results last 3 to 6 months at which time re-treatment is encouraged. Results may last longer with repeated injections.
