Botox® treatment is a simple, non-surgical FDA approved procedure which virtually erases furrows, creases, and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the overactive muscles whose repeated contractions cause these lines.
The results, after a single treatment are dramatic and apparent within 7 to 14 days and last up to 4 months. There is no downtime after the treatment. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.
Treatment can be administered to men and women from ages 16 and up.
Given below are before and after pictures of a typical treatment.
No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting.
The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief -- most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite.
It is unlikely you will develop significant side effects, although some people may develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup.
