One of the best ways to improve fine lines and wrinkles is to limit what causes them in the first place. At Advanced Laser & Cosmetic Center, our doctors often chooses BOTOX Cosmetic injectables because this aesthetic medication does just that: it calms the action of certain facial muscles and smooths the wrinkling they create.
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is actually a form of the Botulinum A toxin. In a purified form, this protein works safely and effectively to reduce dynamic wrinkling.
Where does dynamic wrinkling occur? Typical areas are between the eyebrows, at the corners of the eyes and mouth and across the forehead. Injected in tiny amounts, BOTOX Cosmetic achieves immediate smoothing results and continues to improve the appearance of the skin over the course of two to three days. Total effects last for three to four months and may be repeated as needed.
A younger look with no downtime
Most healthy adults qualify for BOTOX Cosmetic. Your dermatologist performs a complete facial skin exam and reviews your medical history before suggesting any aesthetic skin treatments, including BOTOX. Then, the doctor prepares the areas to be treated and uses a fine needle to inject the medication right under the skin into the muscles.
Most people report feeling a mosquito bite-like sensation during the injections and a mild redness and tenderness afterward. However, BOTOX causes no downtime. In fact, you can be in and out of Advanced Laser & Cosmetic Center in a half hour or so and resume work or other activities.
