What is BOTOX®?
Botox® is a safe and effective way of addressing wrinkles and lines to the face due to the aging process. Botox improves the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines in adults for a short period of time Botox offers minimal recovery. Botox injections are a non-surgical procedure and is taken care of in the office.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® is an agent that deactivates the connection between the nerves and muscles and, when used correctly, can soften facial wrinkles and reduce overactive muscle activity. The onset of BOTOX® usually takes about 6-7 days and lasts anywhere from 3-6 months, after which maintenance injections can be performed.
Are there any side-effects with BOTOX®?
Botox® is a safe and thoroughly tested product. Patients with allergies to BOTOX® or Human albumin, neuromuscular conditions, or women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not have BOTOX®. BOTOX® can cause bruising, swelling, headaches or drooping of the upper eyelids. The converse is that some patients report improvement or resolution of tension headaches and migraines!
