Botox® Cosmetic

If you’ve been noticing wrinkles recently which make you look and feel more tired. Botox® may be the treatment for you. Botox® injections can reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead.

What Is Botox® ?

Botox® is a naturally-occurring purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium which is used in carefully-controlled doses to prevent muscles from contracting. When a muscle is unable to contract under the influence of Botox®, it begins to ‘atrophy’ or flatten out —just as would happen to a muscle prevented from contracting if it were placed in a cast. It is this effect that leads to the reduced appearance of wrinkles which you produce when you squint or frown.

Is It Safe?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe, effective, and affordable in the hands of a trained, skilled and experienced Physician. Although mild side effects such as bruising can occur, more severe adverse events are rare. Botox® requires no downtime and because it works gradually over the span of a few weeks, no one will know you’ve been treated.
