Erase Lines, and Years, From Your Appearance!
Botox is the number one cosmetic treatment in the United States, with 3.8 million treatments in 2005. Approved by the FDA in 2002, Botox treatments effectively eliminate unsightly facial lines and wrinkles. The procedure takes only a few minutes, and involves only minor discomfort. Patients generally return to their normal schedule shortly after the treatment and notice full results within a week.
How it works: Botox is an injectable compound that relaxes the muscles which, when contracted, create wrinkles. The doctor selects injection points for each area to be treated and the botox filler is injected under the skin. Anesthesia is usually not used but a numbing cream may be applied. Antiseptic is applied to finish the procedure.
The variety of Botox uses include:
● An anti-wrinkle treatment
● Treatment for crow’s feet, frown lines, square face
● Furrows in the forehead
● Treatment of ocular muscle spasms
● Treatment for problems with eye coordination
● Relief from severe armpit perspiration
