BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of muscles. With less movement, the skin’s surface gradually smoothes out and the moderate to severe lines begin to fade.
Is BOTOX® FDA- Approved?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive and nonsurgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
What kind of results can I expect?
You can expect to see results within days of your treatment. The appearance of your lines may continue to improve for up to a week. Visible results can last four to six months. Your own results may vary.
What happens if I decide not to continue?
If you decide not to continue the treatments, all treated areas will eventually return to their pretreatment appearance.
Is BOTOX® safe? Isn’t it a poison?
Botox® is a natural, purified protein that is administered at very low doses. The effects of Botox® are usually confined to the injected region. It does not travel throughout the body. It is FDA-Approved and over 20 years of clinical use has proven it safe.
Will I look natural?
Although the results are dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still smile, but without the wrinkles and creases.
