Botox® Cosmetic (or Botulinum Toxin A) is among the most popular treatments used for anti-aging available today. Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved and can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows), reduce forehead lines, crows feet, blepharospasms (excessive blinking), hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the underarms, hands, and feet), migraine headaches, and other physical ailments. It is most commonly used in the US to smooth, firm and restore skin to a more youthful appearance.
When injected into the muscle or tissue, Botox Cosmetic impairs the nerves from telling the muscles to contract or the sweat glands to produce sweat. Specialists will work with you to determine areas that will most benefit from treatment. Patients will be able to see immediate improvement to wrinkled areas.
Patients may notice some initial swelling or redness that will typically subside within a few hours. Aside from immediate results, patients will notice a more rested appearance within 3-5 days of treatment. The best effects of Botox will be noticed in 2 weeks. The effects of Botox Cosmetic typically last 3-4 months and may last up to 6 months. Individual results may vary depending on the strength of the underlying muscles.
