WHAT IS BOTOX?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. While BOTOX Cosmetic can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. BOTOX Cosmetic injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.

The best candidates are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles. In addition, it is important that those seeking treatment are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing and do not have a neuromuscular disorder. People seeking BOTOX Cosmetic injections should have realistic expectations regarding this procedure’s abilities and should discuss their desired goals with their doctor beforehand.

Injections are administered by a qualified physician using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately afterwards. Wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next five days.

Side effects are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. Any risk of complications can be reduced by choosing an experienced physician.

One of the most frequently asked questions is how long do the effects of Botox injections last? The injection will typically last around three to four months. Towards the end stages of the Botox effect, the facial muscles will gradually return and the fine lines and wrinkles will reappear once again. However, over repeated treatments, the facial muscles will appear less and less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. Additionally, with the use of our Flawless Medical Grade Skin Care products, you can help further prolong your Botox effect.
