BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a purified protein administered in a simple, non-surgical procedure to temporary reduce frown lines of the forehead between the brows and around the eyes.
Common areas treated:
- Crow’s feet located as the side of eye
- Forehead frown lines
- Between eyebrow furrows
- Lifting the eyebrows
Who is the ideal candidate for Botox?
Anyone, male or female and age between 18-90 years old, who has muscle activated wrinkles – in other words, if a facial expression enables the wrinkle and it diminishes when you stop the expression, then we can make the wrinkle better.
Botox treatment details
Anesthetic is not needed. Small doses of Botox are instilled through micro gauge needles to the area of the skin marked as most effective by your doctor. We recommend no physical activity or workouts for 2 hours after the treatment to allow the Botox to fully soak into the tissue.
After two hours, it is fully absorbed and you can work out, run or turn cartwheels if you so desire.
Before and After
How soon will I see results?
Botox generally starts working in 3-5 days and gradually works more and more until it is fully working 1-2 weeks after the treatment.
How long do Botox injections last?
Botox generally starts wearing off 3 ½ months after treatment and is fully worn off by 4 months after treatment.
How often will I need to get Botox?
The good thing about Botox is that if you don’t like the result, it wears off fully in 4 months. The bad thing about Botox is that’s it, if you like it, it is fully worn off in 4 months.
Suggested treatment intervals are usually every 3 ½-4 months. After a year of persistent treatment, some people may be able to stretch their intervals to 4-6 months as the muscles weaken. If you stop using Botox, it does not make you worse than if you had not used Botox.
