Want to refine those unwanted signs of facial aging with great results that don’t require surgery? BOTOX® offers a way to turn back the clock without the commitment or risks of more invasive procedures. You can use BOTOX safely on problem areas like those frown lines between the eyes and around the mouth, forehead wrinkles, neck bands, lip lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Although there are a variety of nonsurgical facial fillers and other options, BOTOX remains popular with women and men who enjoy the predictable results and easy treatment sessions.
Approved by the FDA as the first treatment to use botulinum toxin for facial refinement, BOTOX Cosmetic is a method of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. It is very similar to Dysport™, but with a slightly different formula for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. BOTOX’s patented solution is injected into the facial muscles underlying the problem areas. The active ingredient then effectively blocks the signal from the nerves, preventing your muscles from contracting. The result is a relaxed, more youthful appearance.
The effects of BOTOX are temporary, so you’ll need repeat treatments about every 3 – 6 months. You can work with your doctor to decide on a dosage that gives you the level of results you want every time. Treatments take just 20 minutes, so you can pop in for a quick touch up over your lunch break — with no downtime needed.
You may also choose to have BOTOX performed to further enhance the results of facial enhancement procedures like facelift, browlift, or eyelid lift. Other nonsurgical facial procedures that may help you achieve the look you desire include:
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Fat transfer
- Sciton MicroLaser Peel
- SkinTyte™ Photofacial
- Sciton Profile ClearScan™ Hair Removal
