What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is the first botulinum toxin approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows. This prescription medicine is injected directly into the muscle, blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscle. The resulting decrease in muscle activity helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines over time. Results are noticeable 1-2 weeks after the initial injection. A continued injection schedule (an average of every 3 months) continuously helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Please note: If you have severe wrinkles, Botox Cosmetic will not plump up the skin to completely eliminate wrinkles, but it will smooth out these lines. This is when we would recommend a combination of Botox Cosmetic and a facial filler such as Juvederm.
