As we age, wrinkles begin to line our once-smooth face. The natural, physical display of our emotions, such as laughter and frowns, leave their stamp around our lips and eyes. Though some companies offer creams that claim to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, physician-administered treatment is the only way to effect real change in moderate to severe lines, especially that tough spot between the brows. The injection of Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX®) can relax facial furrows caused over time by natural muscle movement. BOTOX® has proven popular with patients, as the treatment is simple, quick and nonsurgical, and you can often see a difference after only a few days. However, the effects are not permanent; you will have to return for treatment after a few months. How often you must go back depends on factors such as skin elasticity, age and treatment site.
Is This Procedure for You?
BOTOX® is suitable for people of all ages, except those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, allergic to ingredients in BOTOX® or have an infection in the area to be treated. Those who have neuromuscular disorders should proceed with caution, as they may experience serious side effects from the treatment.
