THE STORY OF BOTOX
One day you looked in the mirror and studied those lines that furrowed your brow, and you wondered:
Where did they come from?
The lines that appear on your face actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract and cause a pleating of the overlying skin. After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced.
Dynamic lines caused by overactive muscles can be treated with Botox Cosmetic.
Very low doses of Botox Cosmetic are administered through a few tiny injections into the muscles at the sites of wrinkle formation. Botox Cosmetic relaxes the underlying muscle. The effects are localized and do not effect your ability to smile, laugh or show expression.
The treatment procedure takes 10-minutes, no post procedure downtime. Discomfort is minimal and brief. No anesthesia is required; topical anesthetic cream and/or cold packs are available prior to injecting if desired.
You can expect to see results two to seven days after treatment. Results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary.
If you're pleased with the results of a Botox Cosmetic treatment, you'll probably want to get on a treatment schedule so you can stay satisfied.
If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.
