It took me a year before I got up the nerve to try Botox for my frown lines. I am a thinker and when I think I frown so these lines have been burrowed in for a lifetime. Botox relaxed the lines. It did not erase the lines, but it definitely softened them to make them less noticeable. I will be a fan of this procedure for years to come. -Fae Gilkey
BOTOX® Cosmetic is currently used by millions of patients. It is a simple, FDA approved non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been worn into the skin by making the same expression thousands of times. Botox® Cosmetic injections smooth wrinkles by safely and selectively blocking the muscle from contracting. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles gradually soften and disappear.
Botox® Cosmetic has been researched and administered in the medical field for over twenty years. Approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in April 2002 it is used in minute quantities. Botox® Cosmetic is a sterile, purified protein which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Botox® Cosmetic is also used for treatment of excessive sweating, migraine headaches and neurological disorders.
Deep frown lines can virtually disappear, as well as crows feet, forehead wrinkles and smokers lines above the lip. Below is an example of crows feet reduction two weeks after the treatment.
