If fine lines and wrinkles are making you unhappy with your appearance or making you look old before your time, Botox offers a cosmetic solution to smooth wrinkles and reverse the signs of facial aging.
Botox is an effective remedy to eliminate crows feet, frown lines, deep wrinkles between the brow, fine lines around the mouth and can be used to reduce the appearance of expression lines on the forehead. Botox is a clinical form of toxin that is approved by health organizations worldwide for use as a cosmetic treatment. A non-surgical injection, Botox works to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles.
Botox can also be used as a treatment for excessive sweating, migraine headaches, muscle spasms and jaw pain from TMJ.
There is no recovery period from cosmetic Botox injections. Patients are advised not to lie down for 1-3 hours after the procedure as there is a small risk of the liquid moving from the designated area.
The results of Botox are visible immediately: wrinkle free, smooth skin.
For patients who wish to avoid an artificial filler, alternative dermatological treatments such as cell therapy may be a more suitable solution to wrinkles and fine lines.
The cost of Botox varies according to the amount of treatment necessary and the location of your plastic surgeon.
