Reading Injectable Treatments
BOTOX®Cosmetic injections erase wrinkles by immobilizing muscles in specific facial areas such as the forehead and around the eyes. This causes the muscles that form vertical forehead frown creases and crow’s-feet to relax and minimizes the appearance of these signs of aging. BOTOX®Cosmetic injections result in smoother and younger looking skin in the face and neck area without surgery.
BOTOX®Cosmetic is an FDA-approved substance, which is injected directly into the frown muscle or the wrinkle area. Within 24-72 hours the muscles will relax and the wrinkles and frown disappear. The frustrated, tired and angry look on the face will disappear and the patient will look younger with a smoother skin.
It takes few minutes to inject, and its effects last for few months (3-6 months). The treatment has to be repeated as the wrinkles or frown will re-appear. With repeated injection the effects tend to stay longer.
