BOTOX® Cosmetic in Spring Valley & Las Vegas
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections temporarily remove frown lines and crow’s feet. Becoming one of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments done in the past few years, it can significantly relax the muscles between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes. This relaxation can soften what are referred to as dynamic lines, or the wrinkles that show up when animating the face.
Static wrinkles, although best treated with a dermal filler like collagen, can also be subtly improved if there is a degree of tension in the muscle. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections will typically last between 4-6 months, depending on the strength of the muscle. In patients that have repeated injection, the muscle will at times weaken so that the duration of the BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts longer.
Typical treatment times are between 5-10 minutes and are essentially painless. Results are seen as early as 48 hours, although maximum weakening of the muscles can take up to two weeks. We recommend that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections only be done in a physician’s office in order to maintain sterility and maximum patient safety. Although there are physicians out there that perform BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in other than the above places, we do not recommend other areas, as there is a significant chance of paralysis and weakness, which can be deforming.
