Tell me more about BOTOX®
Not all wrinkles are alike. Some are known as dynamic wrinkles and are caused by repeated muscle movement such as frowning, squinting and brow furrowing.
BOTOX®, an injection technique will reduces wrinkles by preventing the muscles from moving. As the BOTOX® takes effect, the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear, giving the face a more refreshed and relaxed look. The frown lines between the eyebrows, the forehead lines and crow’s feet are areas where BOTOX® Cosmetic most is widely used. The procedure is quick and commonly completed in minutes.
The effects of BOTOX® usually last 3 to 5 months, at which time another injection may be administered. We have noticed that repeat treatments over a 1-1 1/2 year period may reduce the frequency of treatments for many individuals.
Because of its effectiveness, and safety record, BOTOX® is now the leading treatment for upper facial wrinkles.
How did BOTOX® become North America’s most popular cosmetic treatment?
Friends told friends. Wives told husbands. More than a 5 million people in North America were treated with BOTOX® last year alone.
One 10-minute treatment-a few tiny injections-and within days, the stubborn, angry-looking frown lines between your brows dramatically relax for 3-6 months. No surgery. No recovery. And BOTOX® is safe and widely tested.
What is BOTOX®?
A BOTOX® treatment is natural, purified protein, which in very low doses relaxes the overactive muscles that cause lines to form.
Where is BOTOX® used?
BOTOX® can relax muscles in several areas to reduce lines, wrinkles and furrows. Most commonly, BOTOX® is used to reduce lines between the eyes,around the eyes and the forehead. Treatment is simple and non-surgical and smoothes the deep, persistent lines of these areas.
Where does the BOTOX® go?
It generally remains only in the treated muscle and gradually disappears without breaking down or traveling throughout the body.
How long does it last?
Results last about 3-5 months.
Will it radically change my appearance?
No. Expect improvement in the appearance of your frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. Overall, you’ll look more relaxed and refreshed but not like “you’ve had work done.”
What can I expect from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Dr. Minuk will determine exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required. The entire treatment takes just a few minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief-most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. Most people return to work or normal activity immediately. Within days, you’ll see a marked improvement, which may continue to improve for as long as a week.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic right for me?
If you’re between the ages of 18 and 65 and doing all you can to look your best is important to you, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you.
If reducing those tough lines between your brows would make you feel more approachable, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you.
Millions of appearance-conscious women and men have already discovered the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Not just models and movie stars, but ordinary people-teachers, mothers, and business people from all walks of life.
