Botox®


 

Botox® -- What is Botox® and is it safe? 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. It contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

How long does the procedure take?

Following the consultation, the actual procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime you can do it at lunchtime and no one would know you had it done!

How does Botox® work?

The underlying cause of frown lines and crow’s feet are repeated muscle contractions from frowning, smiling, and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces muscle activity and thereby relaxes the overlying skin.

How quickly will I see results?

Botox® usually starts relaxing the treated area within several days, but the full effect may not be realized for up to 14 days.

How long will Botox® last?

The effects last between three and four months on average, but everyone is a little bit different.

How quickly will I see results?

Botox® usually starts relaxing the treated area within several days, but the full effect may not be realized for up to 14 days.

Is Botox® safe?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe and FDA approved. However, as in all medications, there are side effects and complications. Approximately 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown line studies and 1% experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies.
