patient_educationWhy BOTOX®?

As we age, the lines on our faces become more prominent. Wrinkle reducing products have been at the forefront of women’s skin care, but often take ages to show any signs of skin improvement.

Growing in popularity, millions of women have trusted Botox to smooth away these age lines to reveal more youthful looking skin. With results that are more noticeable and with no surgery or recovery time, why not discover the benefits millions of women can’t stop talking about?

What It Does:

  • Melissa_BandA_pdfBotox reduces or eliminates wrinkles without surgery.
  • Botox requires no sedation or anesthesia during treatment, just a simple injection.
  • Botox corrects underlying muscles (as opposed to the skin’s surface or skin’s sub-layer the way peels do).
  • Botox reduces horizontal creases in forehead. Reduces frown lines.
  • Botox minimizes the look of crows’ feet and laugh lines.
  • Botox provides dramatic effects.
  • Botox effects are customizable and reversible.
  • Some patients report they no longer get migraine headaches after Botox treatments.

The Procedure:

Several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered directly into the muscles areas you wish to treat. The location of the injections will be determined by examining your ability to move certain muscles in the selected area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.

No anesthesia is required, although you may choose to have the area numbed with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injection. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most patients compare the sensation to a pin prick and treatment takes only a few minutes. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days.

Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last 3 to 4 months.  After that, the muscle action returns. When frown lines reappear, a repeat treatment is necessary to regain the results.
