What else should you know?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines in adults. If you’re bothered by those deepening lines and have thought about treatment to temporarily reduce them, ask for BOTOX® Cosmetic by name.
A full life brings its share of surprises, smiles, and frowns. All those experiences and facial expressions mean repeated muscle contractions, one of the factors that may lead to prominent lines. If you’re bothered by your lines, you’re not the only one… Botox is a naturally occurring substance that helps to diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines on your face and neck. Botox comes in 50 unit and 100 unit bottles. A unit is a measurement used to determine the amount of Botox given, for instance, some treatment areas need only 10 units while others may use 20.
It’s also virtually painless! We numb the area with ice if requested, but because the needle is much thinner than your average needle, you can hardly feel it. Botox is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available. Long-term study results have shown that 853 treatment sessions with Botox over a nine year period resulted in no side-effects for 99% of participating patients. The only side effects that were reported were temporary and considered to be minor such as headaches and bruising.
WHY ELSE SHOULD YOU CONSIDER BOTOX?
The greatest benefit for most people who have Botox is the improvement it makes to their appearance. Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines can improve self confidence and reduce the appearance of aging amazingly!
Long Term and Quick Results
Studies have shown that after two years of denervation, muscles atrophy; which means they get smaller and weaker. The muscles that are causing your lines, if continuously treated with Botox for two years, could also atrophy and not be as likely to create wrinkles! As an added bonus, If lines are treated with Botox on a regular basis, they tend to remain more superficial. You may begin to see results within 24 to 48 hours after treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic..
