What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
These are injections to reduce the wrinkles caused by frowning. Most people notice these wrinkles in the forehead, the lines in between the eyes, or crows feet which are wrinkles around the eyes. Repetitive contraction of muscles can cause these wrinkles to appear on the surface of the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses that makes these muscles relax. The skin on top of the muscle then becomes smoother, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Who Injects the BOTOX® Cosmetic and How is it done?
Our licensed medical staff are certified in providing BOTOX® and have attended advanced training seminars on injection techniques. They have beautiful results when treating our patients. We believe that it is important to evaluate the anatomy and features of each patient’s face prior to the injections. In addition, we will take into consideration the look you are trying to achieve, such as retaining some movement for a more natural look, or some people like a very smooth look. One size definitely does not fill all when it comes to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
