One of the easiest and most affordable ways to look years younger is treatment with Botox – the #1 non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the world.
What is Botox?
Botox is a highly purified natural protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a smother and improved appearance.
How does it work?
Botox is delivered via a few tiny injections directly in the area of concern. It causes a local effect that blocks the message from the nerve to the muscle, so that the muscle doesn’t contract. This creates a smoother more relaxed look.
Where is it used?
Botox can be used in many places on the face. While it gained official approval to smooth out dynamic wrinkles between the eyes (frown lines), as well as the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), Botox is widely utilized in other areas, and can be used to treat forehead wrinkles, migraine headaches and palmar hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms).
What is a treatment like?
Botox is a quick and minimally invasive treatment, and usually takes just a few minutes. There is minimal discomfort, no downtime, and you can return to work immediately afterwards.
When will I see results?
Botox begins to take effect 2-3 days after treatment, with maximum effects seen at day 10-14. Results are dramatic and last 3-4 months after the first treatment. With regular treatments, results can last even longer.
Can I afford it?
The better question is, can you afford not to do it? Botox can truly change the way you look and feel. It is one of the best values of cosmetic treatments. Of course, financing is always available.
