For a number of years, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been the number-one non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. The reason for its continued popularity is that it works, it is safe, and it can produce natural results. If you’re curious whether BOTOX injections may be right for you, we at The MediSpa at Ridgewood Hill encourage you to learn more about it.

A Better Understanding of the Treatment

A common misconception about BOTOX® Cosmetic is that it is a treatment designed to fill in wrinkles. There are products on the market that serve as fillers, working by restoring volume to certain parts of the face. BOTOX injections do not work this way. It is a purified protein serum that blocks the nerve signals controlling the muscles in the face, relaxing them so as to diminish the appearance of local wrinkles. The most common areas of application or this treatment include the brows, forehead, and around the eyes. This product is also able to lift the brows and curb excess sweating. Each session lasts only a matter of minutes.

Are BOTOX Injections Right for Me?

If you are concerned with the way wrinkles are changing your appearance, especially the wrinkles around your eyes, your mouth, and your forehead, then these treatments may be exactly what you need. It is important to note that BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are not permanent. The results last for approximately three months, and repeat sessions may be necessary to maintain the optimal effect.
