Botox ®

     Are you tired of frown lines between your eyes, and crowsfeet every time you smile? Do you have a worried look all the time? A simple, non-surgical solution may be BOTOX® treatments. Minute amounts of BOTOX® are injected into the muscles, causing those unwanted frown lines and crowsfeet to disappear within a few days.

     The substance used in BOTOX® is purified Botulinum Toxin. Despite sounding ominous, it is remarkably safe in the doses used for wrinkle treatment. Side effects are rare and are limited to mild headaches just after the treatment. Very occasionally, when injecting BOTOX® around the eye area, patients may notice a slight eyelid droop.

     Unfortunately, the effect of BOTOX® on the wrinkles is temporary, lasting from 4 to 6 months at a time. Notwithstanding the temporary nature of the effect, the treatment can be repeated, with no known ill effects. Another option for facial wrinkles is a facelift.
