BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical anti-aging solution that can help you reclaim your youthful looks by reducing the appearance of frown lines on your forehead and crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes.
What BOTOX Treats
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments in the last few years. It is best used for treatment of:
- Crow’s feet
- Deep vertical forehead creases
How BOTOX Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes. This relaxation softens dynamic lines – those wrinkles that show up when your face is animated.
Static wrinkles are best treated with a dermal filler, but BOTOX® Cosmetic can subtly improve static wrinkles if your underlying muscles hold tension that causes deeper wrinkles.
What to Expect
BOTOX® Cosmetic is long lasting, but still a temporary solution. You can expect to return every four to six months for additional treatment in order to maintain your youthful appearance. After repeated injections, the muscles may weaken and relax so that your treatments last longer.
Treatment takes about five to ten minutes and is essentially painless. You may see results as early as 48 hours after treatment, but it may take up to two weeks for the treated muscles to relax and reveal your final results.
Injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic should only be done in a physician’s office in order to maintain sterility and maximum patient safety. Although some physicians perform BOTOX® injections in other areas of the face or body, Dr. Garcia does not recommend other areas, as there is a significant chance of paralysis and weakness, which can be deforming.
