BOTOX Cosmetic® is a simple, non-surgical solution used for the reduction of facial wrinkles and lines. It treats dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting – BOTOX® will relax the muscles and noticeably refresh your appearance in just a few days. As such, it is an incredibly popular procedure used by hundreds of thousands of men and women worldwide.
A tiny amount of BOTOX® is injected, very precisely, into the muscles being treated. Because the needle is so fine and only a small mount of liquid is used, the pain associated with the injections is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
At Bellissima Medical Aesthetics you will be treated by an experienced nurse or doctor who will be able to determine the right dose and injection technique for you. The treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the frown line at the injection site, so the other elements of facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, so you will have a normal feeling in the treated areas.
BOTOX® can take up to two weeks to provide full results, and the effect of BOTOX® treatment usually last three to four months, at which time another injection is required. After several treatments, the effects of Botox® may begin to last longer, even up to six months. BOTOX® can also be used to combat the symptoms of excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis.
Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows deepen over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. Therefore treating the problem at the source.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, we usually choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes. There is usually no downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Yes. Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply relaxed.
