BOTOX® Cosmetic is current the most commonly used cosmetic procedure in United States. The procedure is convenient, painless, and effective in eliminating facial lines and wrinkles for a up to 4 months. The procedure is done through small injections, which smooths unwanted lines such as wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet under the eyes, and horizontal lines that run across the forehead.
The name BOTOX® came from its generic form known as botulinum toxin A and was originally FDA approved to treat eye and muscle spasms (as a muscle relaxant), but after seeing its amazing effects on clearing wrinkles, it soon became most popular for its cosmetic value.
BOTOX® may be a perfect fit for your lifestyle if you are looking to enhance your appearance by reducing or eliminating wrinkles or unwanted lines. If you are considering BOTOX® treaments, you need to have realistic expectations regarding the results. Please let your doctor know what your goals are in order to make sure they are achieved.
Some patients may experience mild bruising immediately after the BOTOX® treatment, but it should ease up shortly. Wrinkles will begin to fade and you can be expecting to start looking younger as soon as after 2-4 days. Generally, it’s safe to say that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last up 4 months.
