What is BOTOX®?
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better. Since FDA approval in 2002, BOTOX is the #1 selling product of its kind on the market.
BOTOX has numerous other off-label uses as well including neckbands, horizontal neck lines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), jawline slimming, TMJ relief, jaw clenching, and teeth grinding.
How much BOTOX
will I need?
The right amount of BOTOX is not the same for everyone. The exact number of units for full treatment is customized for each individual person.
A number of factors, including your gender, areas you would like to treat, the natural strength of your facial muscles, and other factors influence the amount of BOTOX you will need.
During your complimentary consultation together, we will go through all the information and choose dosing based on your muscle mass and strength in the area of concern based on the assessment of our master injectors.
What can I expect during my visit?
Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave our office. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 14 days and lasting up to 3 months.
Common side effects include minimal discomfort, swelling, redness or bruising at the injection site. These are temporary, and are expected to resolve quickly.
After your treatment, it is important you do not rub or massage the injection sites, do not lie down for 4 hours and do not exercise for 24 hours.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not candidates for BOTOX.
