Say Goodbye to Frown Lines
Need Botox or Dysport? Say hello to the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure. BOTOX® is an amazing solution in a syringe that quickly and safely smooths the lines and wrinkles associated with expression.* FDA approved in 2002, it continues to be the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in the U.S. BOTOX® injections improve and soften the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles with no downtime. You’ll still maintain your ability to frown, smile, and look surprised, but without the creases and wrinkles!
How Does A BOTOX® Treatment Work?
BOTOX® is an injectable purified protein that stops the contraction of muscles around the injection site. A minute quantity in key muscles virtually erases wrinkles located on the face, like expression lines around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead.* The BOTOX® protein stops nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. When the muscles responsible for wrinkle formation can’t contract, the wrinkle quickly fades. BOTOX® won’t improve static wrinkles, only those related to expression. A very small needle is used in the treatment and the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes, after which you can return to most normal activities. Other than a chance of light bruising or slight swelling, there is no downtime.* BOTOX® has been used cosmetically for over a decade and has one of the best safety profiles in medicine, with very few side effects.
