- Botox – simple, fast and effective treatment for relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles to form
As we age, fine lines can emerge on our face reflecting the passing years. These lines are referred to as wrinkles and for many of us they are unwanted. Fortunately, there is a way to fight the battle of aging and hold onto that youthful appearance. The solution is Botox® Cosmetic. Botox® Cosmetic is the #1 non-surgical cosmetic treatment received. With over 5 million procedures performed annually, Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, effective treatment for unwanted wrinkles and lines.
Botox® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein that is administered through an injection using a micro-needle and provides dramatic results with minimal bruising or discomfort. Treatment is suitable for use in people ranging in age from eighteen to sixty-five. Results are generally visible in a few days and can last several months*. Botox® Cosmetic treatments can also be used to treat excessive sweating of the underarms.
Small doses of Botox® are injected into specific areas of the face to help reduce or eliminate wrinkles around the eye’s or mouth by relaxing the muscles. The muscles are temporarily paralyzed, which allows facial muscles to relax and reduces the pulling effect that creates those lines. Overactive muscles relax as the protein blocks the transmission of nerve impulses. Although office visit times may vary, the procedure generally takes about 20 minutes to complete.
