As we age, a deepening of the creases that appear across the forehead, around the eyes and between the brows (glabellar lines) result from muscle movement and the passage of time. After years of crinkling they become more pronounced and exaggerated. Fortunately there is a way to reverse these signs of aging and give your skin a younger, firmer appearance. Over 11 million men and women have chosen treatment with Botox Cosmetic and experienced proven results; smoothing and softening moderate to severe lines and wrinkles while still allowing your natural facial expressions to come through.*
Botox Cosmetic, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is a safe muscle relaxing agent derived from Botulinum that boasts many varied and growing applications. Although it is most widely known for its effectiveness in reducing wrinkles and fine lines; it is also used to treat ophthalmological and neurologic disorders, in the prevention of migraine headaches and even to stop excessive sweating.
Botox Cosmetic is certainly not just for women. In fact, 12% of total Botox Cosmetic procedures are performed on males and Botox Cosmetic is the most popular minimally invasive physician administered aesthetic procedure for males.
Procedure: The provider will determine where the muscles that need to be treated are located. You may be asked to smile or frown to illustrate the natural movement of your face. Using a tiny micro needle, Botox Cosmetic is precisely injected into the designated facial muscles. Each area takes less than five minutes to treat and there is little or no discomfort associated with the procedure.*
Aftercare: There is virtually no aftercare required and you can drive yourself to and from the appointment. Should any minor, temporary bruising occur, you may cover it with makeup and continue with your daily schedule.
Results: Expect to see results within a few days after your procedure.* These results will begin to fade over four to six months, however, you can safely repeat Botox Cosmetic treatment two-to-three times a year to maintain the look you desire.* Botox Cosmetic also prevents new lines from occurring and with continued use, your face will begin to “forget” to wrinkle and require fewer treatments over time.
Cost: Forehead: $325, Glabella (in between brows): $275, Eyes (crows feet): $275. Discounts available for combined areas. Prices are per area, not by the “unit”. This is a benefit for patients because it ensures patients will get the amount of botox necessary (varies per individual) to achieve the desired results without having to pay for extra “units”.
