Botox® cosmetic injections are one of the most popular and non-surgical plastic surgery procedures available. Botox® injections can effectively remove frown lines and brow furrows from a patient’s face, providing patients with a youthful appearance. As one of the only FDA-approved, wrinkle-relieving procedures, Botox® effectively and temporarily erases wrinkles and lines between the eyes and around the mouth. Botox® contains a neurotoxin capable of blocking the brain’s signal to contract muscles when certain facial expressions are made. The relaxation of the facial muscles delivers smoother skin to patients between the ages of 18 and 65.
A great benefit of Botox® is that patients experience little to no pain! While every patient will experience different results, all patients will notice a drastic reduction in wrinkles and lines. It will take 3–7 days after your treatment to notice the full effects of Botox®. Some patients may notice brief and slight swelling at the injection sites. We advise patients not to apply skin care products containing active ingredients after their treatment. Also, refrain from applying pressure to your face for several days. After your Botox® treatment, you may wish to maintain your new appearance by scheduling follow up sessions every few months — remember Botox® is a temporary yet highly effective wrinkle-releasing agent.
