BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet near the eyes, and surprise lines across the forehead. One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections— provides noticeable improvement within a couple of days. Botox® can also produce a lift in brow height.
Botulinum toxin injections involve several small intramuscular injections designed to temporarily weaken certain muscles that cause skin wrinkling from regular use. Weakening of the injected muscles usually becomes apparent after 2-3 days with the peak effect being reached after 7-14 days. Results usually last 3-4 months, but may shorter or longer for each individual.
Alternative forms of non-surgical and surgical management for the appearance of wrinkles and lines in the skin include laser ablation, fractional laser treatments, chemical peels, dermal fillers, RF procedures, and face lifts. Botox® is generally the first step in an anti-aging treatment program, because results are quick, it is effective for a majority of patients, and affordable.
And, Botox® is not just for women- Botox® for men is a quickly-growing sector in aesthetic medicine. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular minimally-invasive physician-administered aesthetic procedure for men. Men everywhere are seeing the benefits of improving the look of frown lines and preventing deepening lines.
