BOTOX®️ Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) for injection is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients. The first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve moderate to severe lateral canthal lines* AND glabellar lines in adult patients.*Commonly called crow’s feet.It is the leading non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the US since its FDA approval in 2002. It is administered via tiny injections with minimal discomfort and is often referred to as “Lunch time makeover” as it only takes a few minutes for procedure. Results are often visble in only 3-5 days but may take up to 2 weeks to fully appreciate. The effects last up to 5 months.
Are Forehead Wrinkles, Brow Furrows, Or Crow’s Feet Causing You Worry?
How Do BOTOX®️ Cosmetic Injections Work?
When our faces are animated by our expressions, including frowns, surprise, and smiles, we develop forehead lines, brow furrows, crow’s feet, and bunny lines (the vertical lines across the bridge of the nose). To combat this, BOTOX®️ temporarily paralyzes the corrugator, procerus, and orbicularis oculi muscles, all of which are responsible for horizontal surprise lines on the forehead, deep furrows—sometimes called “elevens”—between the brows, and crow’s feet. BOTOX®️ blocks the nerve signals from the brain to these muscles, reducing activity and giving the skin the opportunity to relax. Over time, wrinkles in the skin fade, and with repeated treatments, less BOTOX®️ is required each time for the same effect. So if you’re concerned about fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead, but aren’t ready for a surgical treatment such as a facelift, BOTOX®️ may be everything you need.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people concerned about forehead lines and wrinkles, brow furrows, or crow’s feet are good candidates. Those allergic to any ingredient in BOTOX®️, have a skin infection in the treatment area, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a muscle or nerve condition may not be ideal patients for BOTOX®️ Cosmetic treatments.Read more..
