Some facial lines are caused by repeated muscular movements in the tissues under the skin.
Because these movements are repeated over and over in the same part of the delicate facial
tissue, eventually skin is damaged and permanent lines develop. You may look like you are
always frowning or squinting. If you have these pronounced, moderate to severe face wrinkles,
Botox® will smooth their appearance without the need for surgery.
What is involved in the procedure?
Treatment with Botox® involves several injections of the Botox® serum into the muscles under the skin. Because Botox® reduces movement of the treated muscles, the appearance of frown lines and crows feet will be greatly reduced within just a few days.
What is the normal healing time after this procedure?
Since Botox® treatments are simple injections, your treatment will take only minutes and you will have virtually no period of recuperation. Some patients even stop by the doctor’s office for treatments during their lunch hour.
What results can I expect?
After your Botox® treatments, you can expect significant reduction in the lines in your face that
make you appear worried or older. Although individual results vary, the treatment should be
effective for a period of 8-12 weeks to four months before you will need additional injections.
