We are pleased to offer safe, effective BOTOX Cosmetic treatments in our Cosmetic Eye Center to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead creases.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that has shown great success in millions of patients around the world. Developed from a purified protein toxin, BOTOX Cosmetic softens facial lines by blocking nerve impulses to temporarily paralyze the wrinkle-causing muscles.
Why is BOTOX Cosmetic so popular?
The treatment is especially popular because it takes only a few minutes and is safe. Many of our patients receive BOTOX Cosmetic injections on their lunch break and return to work immediately. The effects of BOTOX Cosmetic last 4 to 6 months and may be repeated as necessary to maintain smooth, younger looking skin.
Is BOTOX safe?
BOTOX has been proven to be used safely, with successful results, in ophthalmology for over 10 years and by dermatologists to reduce wrinkles for over 6 years. Because the amount of BOTOX used to reduce wrinkles is such a small amount, side effects are temporary and only noted in the area of injection.
Where can BOTOX be injected?
BOTOX is commonly used in the area between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX may also be used in the neck.
How is BOTOX administered?
Using a very small needle, a few drops of BOTOX are injected into the muscle that is creating the wrinkle. This causes blocking of the nerve impulse to the muscle, resulting in the muscle weakening. The skin overlying the muscle then relaxes, causing the wrinkle to gradually disappear.
Does a BOTOX injection hurt?
Patients may feel a slight stinging sensation during the injection, but there is usually no discomfort at all when the injection is complete.
