What Is Botox®?
Botox® has been in use for over 17 years for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions and has been widely researched. The FDA approved the use of Botox® for the treatment of facial wrinkles in 2002. The wrinkles and lines that appear on the forehead and around the eyes are the result of repetitive muscle movements, such as smiling, frowning, or squinting. Very low doses of Botox® are injected into these muscles thereby enabling the muscles to relax, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance to the skin.
Is Botox® a Good Choice For Me?
Botox® is the most popular physician-administered cosmetic procedure in the United States. Many men and women routinely schedule Botox® injections in an attempt to prevent and minimize lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. You can expect to see improvement in the appearance of your skin within days to a week following the treatment. The duration of the improvement is variable and most typically lasts between three and four months.
