A simple and effective way to provide patients with a more youthful, refreshed look. Botox Cosmetic® is a well established and safe way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles which give us the appearance of looking tired or angry as we age. Botox Cosmetic® is intended to enhance your appearance, not change it.
Botox Cosmetic® is a purified protein which is used to relax muscles that cause expression lines and wrinkles. These lines are caused by years of repetitive muscle contractions. As we age, our skin loses elasticity which, combined with repetitive muscle contractions, results in expression lines and wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic? works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. Injected muscles cannot contract which causes wrinkles to relax and soften. Sites most commonly treated are frown lines between the brows, forehead lines and crow's feet.
Botox Cosmetic® is administered into specific muscles through a very fine needle. No anaesthetic is required, and discomfort associated with injections is minimal. Results typically begin to appear within days and full effects are visible in one to two weeks. The effects are temporary and generally last three to four months. With repeated treatment, lines may become less severe as the muscles become conditioned to relaxing.
Botox Cosmetic® has been used safely with consistent results in the medical profession for over 20 years for a variety of medical conditions and cosmetic treatment.
