In the battle against the effects of aging, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become one of the most popular available options. Simple, non-invasive and effective, BOTOX® produces quick, long-lasting results in a single treatment.
How BOTOX® Works
The lines that appear on your forehead and between your eyebrows are usually caused by the tightening of muscles due to stress or simply habit. After years of stress-related frowning, these lines can become deep furrows. In many cases, these lines make you look older than you are, or make you look perpetually angry or worried. Fine lines and wrinkles can also develop around the mouth through a similar process. These lines are especially common with smokers, who purse their lips repeatedly while smoking.
BOTOX® is administered in small doses directly into the muscles that cause these furrows to appear. The muscles become relaxed, easing frown lines and brow wrinkles. The effects will last as long as four to six months.
A typical BOTOX® treatment is administered in our offices at Katzen Eye Group and takes less than an hour. BOTOX® is injected in carefully measured doses into the forehead muscles. The fine-gauge needles used for injections cause little to no discomfort, and you can return to everyday activities immediately.
