Do It for Yourself

you have nothing to prove and nobody to impress. You know who you are and feel good about yourself. However, over time you can develop wrinkles between your eyes or lines on your forehead, which can make you look older than you actually are and give you a serious, stressed or anxious expression. Laughing can also lead to the formation of crow's feet. All of these wrinkles can be smoothed out or totally eliminated with Botox® injections.

Having a better appearance can give you more self-confidence. BOTOX® is a simple, safe and non-surgical way to smooth out wrinkles and restore a fresher and more youthful appearance.

Botox® has been used safely and successfully for over 20 years, and has been part of therapeutic treatments in dermatology for more than 12 years.

What exactly is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age. During the treatment, very low doses are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually completed in about 10 minutes with no recovery time. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to four months. Results may vary.

How does BOTOX® work?

Muscle activity over time causes moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. BOTOX® is injected directly into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the muscle activity that causes those lines to form.

How quickly will I see results from a BOTOX® treatment?

Within days you may see a marked improvement in the frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to four months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to good only one month after treatment. Results may vary.

How long does BOTOX® last?

Results from BOTOX® treatment can last up to four months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.

Who should administer BOTOX®?

Any authorized healthcare professional can administer BOTOX®, but dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists (ear, nose, and throat doctors), or other physicians specializing in cosmetic procedures are generally more experienced. One of these physicians can help you decide if BOTOX® is right for you.
