BOTOX® is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults. So you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, meaning it blocks nerve impulses, which works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – creating a more youthful and smoother appearance. Decades of use by millions of clients around the world and multiple clinical trials have shown that BOTOX® is safe and reliable for long term, repeated use.
During your consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and benefits of the procedure, medical history, examine, before and after photos, and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
Your BOTOX® procedure will be surprisingly quick, simple, and relatively painless, injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.
BOTOX® is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment, the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
Some people may experience mild bruising at the injection sites, but in general, BOTOX does not require any downtime or recovery period. If bruising occurs, it should go away within a matter of days.
