Botulinum Toxin (Botox™, Dysport™, Xeomin™) is a naturally occurring substance that has been used in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years. It is an injectable that helps to relax dynamic lines of facial expression. The most common areas treated with Botox™ include forehead lines, frown lines, crowe’s feet around the eyes, and bunny lines around the nose. By targeting these muscles, people are able to look more relaxed and refreshed in a very natural way.
Through muscle relaxation, other indirect effects are achievable with Botox™ cosmetic such as eyebrow shaping and lifting, jawline tapering, and neck rejuvenation.
The effects of Botox™ are usually noticed 3-4 days after treatments, and may take up to 2 weeks before fully present. Results are temporary and last typically between 4-5 months. There is minimal downtime, with very little if any pain during the procedure.
