Botox® Cosmetic Injections
At times, patients seek non-surgical options when looking to renew the look of their skin. As we age, it is inevitable that we begin to see fine lines and wrinkles develop on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, known as Botox®, is a purified protein injectable filler that is FDA-approved for the temporary treatment of frown lines. This simple, non-surgical injection is also commonly used to temporarily reduce or eliminate forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and lines around the mouth.
The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. After the injections, you will notice improvement in these lines within days and the results can last up to 3-4 months. Studies have suggested that botulinum toxin can also be effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Young to middle-aged men and women or those between the ages of 18 and 70 who would like to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet or forehead lines may be good candidates for Botox® treatment. A consultation with Dr. Kenna or Dr. Buckius will help determine if Botox® is right for you.
