It would be wonderful if we could have wrinkle free skin all of our lives, but elements such as the wind and sunlight, coupled with the natural process of aging, takes a toll on our bodies — especially the face. If you have tried over-the-counter creams and lotions, but have not achieved your desired result then BOTOX® Cosmetic could be the answer for you.
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is commonly used for injecting into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a period of time (temporary). The results are temporary–generally lasting for a period of 3-4 months; however, some long-term users state that at times the correction will last for up to 6 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is also effective for smoothing lines on other areas of the face, including crow’s feet and wrinkled lip lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a procedure that has been safely used to treat a variety of conditions for more than 10 years and is approved by the FDA. Dr. Paine has worked with a great number of patients to achieve very positive results.
No anesthesia is required during this treatment. However, an anesthetic cream may be used to numb the treatment area prior to the injections. Your ability to move various muscles in your facial area will determine where to administer the injections. Several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic will then be administered directly into the muscles impacting the treatment area. Patients are able to resume normal activity immediately. The procedure is so easy that you can have it done during your lunch break. Treatment time is approximately 15 minutes.
Patients are able to return to work immediately following treatment. Soreness and/or swelling around the injection site are possible.
Muscles will begin to relax and a more youthful appearance will be observed within days of the treatment. Treatments last between three to six months.
