We laugh, We frown, WE SMILE!!!
And over time, those expressions leave their mark upon the face. Until today there wasn't a lot that could be done about it. But now there's BOTOX® Cosmetic, a simple non surgical treatment that can dramatically reduce even the toughest wrinkle within days.
What exactly is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are usually confined to the injected region; it does not travel throughout the body.
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a simple nonsurgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time. One ten-minute treatment (a few tiny injections) relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been widely tested and is approved by the FDA. The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, BOTOX® Cosmetic virtually "erases" these lines.
Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, simple and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, people will know something was done, they just won't know what. BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your appearance or make you look "like you've had work done.
Botox® Cosmetic: Reduce fine lines & wrinkles
The Problems with Aging, that can be solved with Botox® Cosmetic:
- The lines that appear between your brows (frown lines)
- Worry lines of forehead
- Sagging eye brow
- Crow's feet (smile lines)
Botox® Cosmetic, sometimes called "a facelift in a bottle", is a purified protein. When small doses are injected directly into the muscles, impulses from the nerves to the injected muscle causing the wrinkles are blocked - allowing them to relax. This relaxing of the muscle allows the skin to smooth out persistent lines that which developed over time.
Botox treatments usually last about 10-15 minutes and keep the muscles that cause lines relaxed for up to 4 months. In some cases, with repeated treatments. Results are dramatic and apparent within days and unlike surgery it is fast, simple and minimally invasive.

BOTOX Can Help Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis ( Excessive Sweating) is a disorder that that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature.
Botox injections interrupt the signal from the nerve to the sweat gland to reduce the sweating in the area that is affected. The injection is done with a very fine needle and, for treatment of the underarms, face and head, anesthesia is often not required as the procedure is virtually painless. The percent reduction in sweating in clinical study was 83% in 95% of participants. The effect of treatment can be immediate or take up to a week, with the average duration of effect after a single treatment being 7 months.
