Botox Injectables

Dramatic results, few side effects and no downtime have made Botox the choice for men and women who seek to look as young as they feel. The effects of Botox Cosmetic usually last 3 to 6 months at which time another treatment is required. After several treatments, the effects may begin to last longer. It’s the simple, non-invasive treatment that’s revolutionizing the science of creating more relaxed and refreshed looking faces.

Repeated facial muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting form lines known as dynamic wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. The procedure is so quick and simple that patients can often have it done on their lunch hour. Botox Cosmetic is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein.

Benefits of Botox
  • Quick results, within two weeks
  • No downtime
  • Targets your specific concerns: crows feet, frown and/or forehead
  • Minimizes the wrinkles you have and prevents new ones from forming
  • Visible results for 3-6 months
How it works

A small amount of Botox Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the treated area, and as a result the muscles relax. As the muscles relax, the dynamic wrinkles overlying the muscles are smoothed away.

Botox Cosmetic can be used to treat frown lines, forehead worry lines, crowsfeet, nasal bunny lines, peri-oral lip lines, horizontal and vertical neck lines, the corners of the mouth and depressed brows. The treatment only relaxes the muscles beneath the wrinkles at the injection site, so the other elements of facial expression remain active and you will still look natural.
