Botox is an affordable and effective solution to treating fine lines and preventing wrinkles from deepening and has one of the highest satisfaction rates in the aesthetic industry. The popularity of Botox is quickly growing, with millions of men and women considering Botox a regular occurrence in their personal up-keep routine. The typical Botox treatment lasts between 3-6 months, depending on how quickly the body metabolizes the substance. Botox is commonly used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines (11’s), chin, neck and more.
Botox® treats moderate to severe lines and wrinkles usually between the brows, the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet). There are many ways Botox® can be used to soften lines and relax the downward pull of gravity. Talk to your provider about all of your concerns.
The product is a naturally derived, safe injectable liquid that relaxes the muscles preventing over movement and the creation of creases and lines for a beautifully refreshed look. Botox® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein.
Most all are good candidates for this treatment but let your provider know if you have any neurological issues or allergies.
Botox® can be used in many areas of the face and therapeutically to treat migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and eye twitching.
