How does Botox® Cosmetic work? When you smile, frown or make facial expressions, your muscles contract. Over time muscle contraction contributes to making the skin become less elastic which causes wrinkles and frown lines. When Botox® Cosmetic is injected into your facial region, it blocks nerve impulses from activating the contractions that cause wrinkles and frown lines to develop. Your skin will appear smoother and more relaxed. Treatments are fast and virtually painless with no downtime.
Most patients see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles within three days although results may vary. The results of the Botox® Cosmetic last appropriately three to four months and with repeated treatment, you can see longer-lasting effects.
Very few cosmetic procedures have transformed anti-aging medicine as dramatically as Botox® Cosmetic. This minimally invasive procedure reverses the signs of aging by temporarily improving the appearance of facial wrinkles. If you are experiencing mild to moderate facial aging, Botox® Cosmetic is a great option. The best way to determine if Botox® Cosmetic is right for you is by calling our office for a complementary consultation.
