Bringing Science to Beauty & Health
Sun damage, lifestyle, gravity and aging all contribute to one of our biggest fears, looking old. Luckily in 2020 the antiaging treatment options are advanced and endless. One of the most used and effective methods for reducing fine lines and wrinkles is Botox. By starting Botox injections at an early age you can prevent some of the effects of aging. This non-surigcal, easily accessible, and proven treatment has become part of many people's maintenance strategies.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA)?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine primarily used for cosmetic reasons. BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven to be medically safe and received FDA approval in 2002. BOTOX® has become one of the most popular aesthetic treatment.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® is injected right into the muscle to block the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, preventing or inhibiting muscles to contract. As such, BOTOX® is ideal for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines that appear with facial expressions. The deep lines on the forehead and “crows feet” which are multiple tiny wrinkles at the corners of our eyes, are common and popular areas to treat with noticeable results. Injections will need to be repeated in order to maintain that desirable and youthful wrinkle free expression.

How long does BOTOX® last?
The length of time treatments last vary from patient to patient but most will experience a lasting effect for up to 3-4 months. Once the BOTOX® injections have been completed most patients see an immediate improvement and continue to improve for as long as 30 days for full effect.

- Forehead lines
