BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are a great way to rejuvenate your appearance. Individuals who have used this treatment have been extremely satisfied with the results they have seen. The treatments make them look younger and feel fantastic. When a person feels confident in their appearance, they feel confident in other areas of their life as well. While many individuals have heard of BOTOX® Cosmetic, they still do not fully understand how it is used and what it can treat.

The main ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein solution. When this solution is skillfully injected into certain muscles in the face, it causes them to relax. When these muscles are able to relax, they do not contract as strongly. This affects the way the skin on top of the muscles moves. When the muscles contract often or stay contracted, the skin on top of them stays creased and folded. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin on top of them stays smooth.

Most individuals are able to enjoy the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic for about three months on average. This will depend on a variety of factors, however. When you come in for your consultation, we will do our best to give you an idea of how long this product will work for you.

Many individuals have had success using BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment and dermal fillers combined. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not add any volume to a person’s face. It simply relaxes the muscles under the skin. So, if you have sagging skin and well as expressive wrinkles, it may be wise for you to use BOTOX® Cosmetic to relax the muscles and then use dermal fillers in order to fill in any creases and restore lost facial volume. We can tell you more about the dermal fillers options that we have available during your consultation.
