Re-energize yourself while keeping your look fresh and youthful. This non-surgical cosmetic treatment will minimize the appearance of fine lines as it relaxes the muscles that cause persistent lines developed over time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.
BOTOX® is a simple, non-surgical treatment that temporarily smoothens moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® can make you look fresher and younger in a short amount of time, which makes it a better choice over plastic surgery, which costs much more and takes much longer.
How Long will Botox Last?
Results vary from person to person, but BOTOX® results usually last three to five months, and may even last longer with repeated injections.
What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
How does Botox Work?
BOTOX® works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. BOTOX® blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles to form. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Is Botox only Used for Wrinkles?
BOTOX® is also used to treat Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is a troublesome condition that causes those who experience it to often be in uncomfortable in social situations. Topical medications, oral medications, iontophoresis, and surgery have not been proven to be very effective against Hyperhidrosis. However, BOTOX® has been found to give effective temporary relief from this unfavorable condition. BOTOX® treatment helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
What Age Can You Start Using Botox?
Botox is a popular choice for adults of all ages, from early 20’s on. Results are excellent in all age groups, softening existing lines, preventing new lines from forming and facial contouring. Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment on the market.
