What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic® is an injection that reduces the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form over time. Used primarily to smooth the lines of the forehead, eye and neck area, it eliminates wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. Botox injections are non-surgical and minimally invasive. Clients often see a dramatic improvement, especially in the upper face.
The Botox Cosmetic treatment is a quick procedure with little to no downtime or recovery. Anesthesia is not required and the treatment takes as little as ten minutes. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after your visit.
How fast will results appear?
Botox Cosmetic starts to work within the first few days, however, the majority of patients see significant improvement at 7 to 10 days. Results will continue to improve for up to a month and can last up to four months, however, individual outcomes may vary. First time patients at the Center for Cosmetic Dermatology are scheduled for a two week follow up visit to review results. Our medical provider is available to answer questions or concerns at any time after a Botox Cosmetic treatment.
What are the possible side effects with my treatment?
