Many are turning to Botox to reduce moderate to severe frown lines between their brows, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. This safe and effective medication is placed into your wrinkles using a tiny needle. It is used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of the muscles in these trouble areas. Botox can brighten up your attitude and outlook, remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face. Botox has also been used successfully for patients with excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet.
Botox is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected in the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. A topical anesthesia can be used, if necessary.
FDA approved, Botox is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last anywhere from 3-5 months on average.
Following the Botox procedure it is not uncommon to experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising around the targeted site. Patients can take Tylenol and/or use ice packs to help reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort.
