BOTOX® Cosmetic has been being used in cosmetic procedures since 2002 with staggering results and popularity. Since the FDA has approved it for cosmetic use, over five million BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have been administered in the United States alone. This popularity is largely due to its effectiveness.
One series of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections (a simple procedure that lasts approximately ten minutes) will dramatically reduce wrinkle lines for up to four months. Since the procedure is non-surgical, patients often prefer it to a facelift because it is less expensive and requires little to no healing time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is useful in treating:
- Lip lines
- Wrinkles and smile lines around the eyes
- Forehead creases
- Lines between the eyes
- Vertical lines on the neck
BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe, easy and relatively inexpensive. Made from a sterile form of the Botulinum Toxin A, it works by preventing muscle contraction where BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected. It may take a few days for the muscle to completely relax and the line or wrinkle to become less noticeable. There may be some redness at the point of the injection.
