When delivered correctly, BOTOX® Cosmetic can provide a refreshed, relaxed, and more youthful appearance. It can make you look younger while also guarding against the formation of those pesky wrinkles that tend to develop between your eyebrows and on your forehead. It is expected that you would have some questions and concerns about the treatment before deciding whether or not you want to move forward with it.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a liquid that we deliver through an injection to relax facial muscles responsible for so-called dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that are typically found on the forehead, between the eyebrows, or as crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes.
The product has a public record of safety spanning numerous decades. It is carefully purified under extremely strict, controlled conditions in a laboratory. In addition to its use as in anti-aging treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic is widely used to treat other issues.
After injection, the product is not dispersed throughout the body. Instead, it remains where it is located to slow the activity of treated facial muscles.
What are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are created from underlying facial muscle contractions. BOTOX® Cosmetic is able to prevent the transmission of nerve messages from the brain to the treated facial muscles. This prevents them from contracting and developing a dynamic wrinkle.
What is a Consultation Like?
At your treatment consultation, we will review your goals and concerns regarding your treatment. We will help to manage your expectations so that you obtain the best result. We will also make individual treatment recommendations to allow you to meet your goals. This is your opportunity to ask any lingering questions that you may have so that you understand each part of the treatment process.
What is a Treatment Like?
We will make sure to go over each step of the process before beginning. It is normal to feel a bit nervous. During the treatment, we will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the treated muscle using specialized techniques. It’s really that simple. You are free to resume most all normal activities after the treatment sessions.
