A Botox Cosmetic treatment in the hands of a properly trained health care professional, is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time. One ten minute treatment – a few tiny injections – relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to three to five month; four months, being the usual follow up time for repeat injection. Botox Cosmetic has been widely tested and approved by the FDA. The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. Unlike surgery, Botox Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people can return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed.
What Causes frown lines between the brows?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in stubborn lines. Because frown lines are “dynamic” lines caused by overactive muscles, they can usually be treated with tiny injections of Botox Cosmetic, which works by blocking the release of chemical that causes these muscles to contract. On the other hand, “static” lines, which are visible even when the muscles are at rest, are best treated with a combination of Botox and an injectable dermal fillers, such as Juverdermn, Restylane, or Radiesse.
Who is being treated with Botox Cosmetic?
Men and women of varying ethnicities have been treated. Because it works only on the underlying muscles, it is not expected to affect skin color.
What Botox Cosmetic isn’t
Botox is not magic. It is medicine, the result of years of careful; research and testing. It will not radically change your appearance or make you look “like you’ve had work done”. It will not make you look twenty years younger. Because it is highly localized and administered intramuscularly, its effects are usually confined to the region of injection, and Botox Cosmetic does not remain in your body indefinitely.
Is Botox Cosmetic right for me?
