HOW DOES BOTOX®COSMETIC WORK?
Botulinum injection Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.
Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
The treatment takes less than 30 minutes to perform and takes effect in 4-10 days. It can be done in lunchtime and you will be able to return to work afterwards. Gradually, over 3-5 months the BOTOX© effect will fade and the muscle action will return. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired results. Subsequent treatments enhance the desired effects of the previous treatments.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
In a very short time, BOTOX© therapy can fade away frown lines and crow’s feet that have been present for years. This cosmetic treatment can change your life in many ways. As we age, the movements that are repeated in the face create lines or wrinkles. Over a period of years, these wrinkles become deeper and deeper. The beauty of BOTOX © is that within a short period of time the wrinkles disappear and we can appear 10 or more years younger. BOTOX© is the brand name for a natural, purified protein neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria that assists us in the transformation. Tiny injections of the purified protein into the wrinkle paralyze the muscle so that it cannot contract. This automatically results in relaxation of the muscles. Unlike surgery, BOTOX© is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no down time or recovery. Most people are able to return to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking and feeling more natural and relaxed.
