What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine, and is not a facial filler. BOTOX® is injected into muscles and is an effective fix for moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® targets areas such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles.
How do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Work?
It works because it actually weakens the facial muscles that are causing the wrinkles to show. The weakened muscles relax so that the skin can flatten and smooth out. BOTOX® is available to everyone and allows you to look your freshest and youngest even as aging tries to take that away from you.
When Should I Consider a wrinkle filler?
If you have visible lines in any of the following locations, you should definitely consider starting BOTOX®.
- On your forehead (transverse worry lines)
- Between your eyebrows (Frown lines)
- Smile lines (crow’s feet)
You don’t have to wait to use BOTOX® to treat wrinkles that are already present, BOTOX® not only treats wrinkles – it prevents them.
BOTOX® Treatment Process
Dr. Lipton uses a very fine needle, to inject BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows and lines. Usually receiving the BOTOX® injections requires no anesthetic, but some patents choose to have the area to be injected numbed with ice packs or topical anesthetic cream.
How long does it take to see results from Cosmetic Injections?
Within 24 to 48 hours you may begin to notice softening in the appearance of your moderate to severe lines. Areas will continue to improve up to a month after injections.
How Long Do BOTOX® Results Last?
Results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Every individual is different, so results will vary. Our specialist will discuss what you can expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
