Botox Cosmetic is a FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines by reducing specific muscle activity between the brows and crow’s feet in adults 18-65 years of age. Botox is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. Most patients saw improvements in 2 days with results lasting up to 3-4 months. There is little to no downtime after treatment which means you can get back to your day faster.
How BOTOX Works
BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN are all a type of injectable product called neuromodulators that temporarily suspend muscle contractions. While these products are often used as wrinkle treatments, they don’t work by adding volume within the skin like injectable fillers; instead they enable wrinkles to gradually fade as the skin is no longer creased by muscle contractions.
BOTOX for Wrinkles
BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN are all safe, effective injectable treatments that smooth out wrinkles and give a more youthful, pleasant appearance. Common treatment areas include:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows called glabellar lines or the “11s”
We often combine BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN treatments with injectable filler treatments because they work on different types of lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX treatments not only smooth away facial creases, providing you with a more youthful look, but they also help to retrain your facial expressions so you won’t continue to make the same creases, minimizing your need for additional BOTOX treatments.
How long does Botox last?
Generally 4-6 months, but it does all depend on how quickly your body metabolizes it.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is safe as long as it is injected by an experienced professional. Botox is also FDA approved
What to Expect
At your complimentary consultation, we use our expertise and years of experience to determine whether BOTOX, Dysport, or XEOMIN is best suited to your unique needs and aesthetic goals. Because we make the injections with a tiny micro-needle, the associated discomfort is minimal, described by some as similar to a very small pinprick. These simple treatments require only a few minutes to complete. Afterwards, you may immediately resume your normal activities.
BOTOX for Excessive Sweating
BOTOX is an excellent treatment for hyperhidrosis, or excessive perspiration (sweating). Excessive sweating can be effectively reduced by more than 75% when BOTOX is injected into areas of the underarms and palms of the hands. Initial results usually last between 9 months and a year. Results last longer when patients receive consecutive treatments over a period of time.
BOTOX for Chronic Migraines
Approved by the FDA as a preventive treatment for chronic migraines, BOTOX is commonly prescribed for people who have at least 15 days each month with headaches lasting 4 or more hours.
