Botox Near Me
BOTOX® has been used therapeutically for more than 17 years. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. In 2002, the same formulation – under the label BOTOX® Cosmetic – was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65.
What is it used for?
How does BOTOX® work?
During treatment, low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few small injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, BOTOX® Cosmetic enables them to relax. The effects are very localized and, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
What are some common side effects?
Temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.
What is the treatment like?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections. No anesthesia is required, though he or she may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The procedure takes about 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. Discomfort is minimal and brief. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/swelling may be associated with the injection.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although you may see a marked improvement, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic does not make you look like you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
How soon will I see a difference?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, and the appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week.
