Even if you don’t know much about anti-aging options, you’ve probably heard of BOTOX®.
It can produce incredible natural anti-aging results for both men and women.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a protein serum used by plastic surgeons to treat wrinkles caused by underlying muscle contraction. It’s one of the best non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation available.
With BOTOX, you’ll see immediate results and love your new appearance right from the start.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic blocks impulses between your nerves and facial muscles. This causes the muscles in your face to relax and your skin to smooth out.
Your nerve impulses are only blocked temporarily, and scientific studies have proven that your muscles will regain full function in three to six months.
BOTOX has been used effectively for over 20 years since first being approved as a safe and effective therapy drug since 1989.
Benefits of BOTOX
BOTOX can improve the appearance of the following issues:
- Furrows and wrinkles on your forehead
- Small wrinkles and crow’s feet around your eyes
- Vertical Frown lines between your eyebrows
- Fine lines around your mouth
- Horizontal wrinkles around your nose
- Nostril flares
- Excess chin puckering
What to Expect During Your BOTOX Treatment
We’ll deliver BOTOX Cosmetic by injection into the facial muscle being treated. We use a very small needle to minimize your discomfort.
A small amount of BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into each wrinkle until we’ve taken care of every concern you have. About one percent of patients experience mild bruising after treatment.
Use Botox to Relieve Your Migraines
You’ve probably heard of Botox as a way to get rid of wrinkles, but Botox is also used to treat chronic medical conditions. Botox was approved as a treatment option for chronic migraines in 2010.
If you have 15 or more headache days per month and have not found relief through other treatments, botox injections might be the right treatment option for you. The more frequent your headaches, the more likely it is that Botox will relieve some of your pain.
Botox provides relief when it is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches. It blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This means the pain networks in your brain aren’t activated.
While you might not experience immediate relief, but after the second or third treatment, many patients notice a 50 percent decrease in migraine-related pain. It can take up to six months for Botox treatment to take full effect, and you can safely continue taking any other medication in the meantime.
Botox is approved by the FDA as a migraine treatment of patients over the age of 18.
