The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, or crows feet near the eyes. Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain…even when your muscles aren’t contracting. Often refered to as your 1’s, 11’s or 111’s, they can make you look angry and unapproachable.
The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes. Visit the Botox®cosmetic website for more information.
You will see a noticeable softening in 24-48 hours and will continue to improve over the next 10-14 days. Results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your results may vary, so ask Dr. Siegel what you might be able to expect.
The combination of treatments is gaining popularity for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. The use of Botox®, with injectable fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, Belotero, Expression, Obagi or Vitvite skin care products, micro needling, microdermabrasion, and Accent XL are all easily used in conjuction to help aging skin look it’s best.
