Reduces the appearance of crows’ feet, frown lines, forehead lines, upper lip lines and vertical neck lines. Botox® injections can reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead.
Botox is also used to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches and reduce excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhydrosis).
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.
