If you feel that your face has become a road map, and you’re not happy with the direction it is taking, BOTOX® may be just the detour you need in your life.
BOTOX is a nonsurgical treatment that is typically performed by a cosmetic surgeon. A botulinum toxin medication is injected into the troublesome area to stop the contraction of small, targeted facial muscles by blocking the nerve impulses to these areas.
The injections take just a short time to administer (depending on the amount of injections needed) and they are virtually painless. There is no need for anesthesia, but the surgeon may numb the injection areas to reduce discomfort.
While every person’s BOTOX results will differ, many patients see improvement in their lines within a few days after the procedure. The medication continues to work its magic for 30 days, as you watch your facial road map become less visible. BOTOX results can last for up to four months and must be repeated to maintain your smoother appearance.
