What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
The popular cosmetic treatment has helped countless people who suffer from wrinkled faces, frown lines and other unwanted signs of aging. BOTOX Cosmetic allows users to look and feel younger – without the risk and expense that can come with plastic surgery.
BOTOX Cosmetic debuted in 2002, and is the first botulinum toxin that the federal Food and Drug Administration has approved to temporarily treat moderate frown lines between the eyebrows.
BOTOX Cosmetic has been selected by millions of patients and doctors – with nearly 12 million procedures performed in the U.S. since its introduction in 2002.
How BOTOX Works
BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescribed medicine typically injected between the eyebrows by a trained professional. The product reduces the severity of frown lines between the brows, and is used by patients age 18 and older.
The medication is injected into muscles between the eyebrows and blocks nerve impulses to those muscles. This treatment decreases muscle activity that can lead to lines forming between the brows. To maintain effectiveness, BOTOX injections should be given to patients every few months.
Can I Get BOTOX Treatments?
Cosmetic BOTOX is best suited for patients who want to make frown lines less noticeable. It also helps patients with crow’s feet and forehead creases. Extremely deep lines often can require more than one BOTOX treatment session.
BOTOX is not used to treat wrinkles resulting from sun damage. It also does not impact the loss of skin elasticity, which is a natural part of growing older.
Ideally, BOTOX should only be used by those ages 18 to 65. Women who are pregnant or nursing should avoid BOTOX treatments.
Some people have better responses to BOTOX than others. Sometimes, little improvement may be seen and another type of treatment may be needed.
BOTOX is an excellent treatment, but as with any procedure or drug, there are potential side effects. These include pain at the site of injection, headache, swelling, bruising and bleeding. These side effects are normal and have been found to accompany most types of injections. Most symptoms fade away in a few hours — a few days at the most.
More severe potential side effects include flu-like symptoms, drooping of treated muscles and respiratory infections. These side effects are extremely rare. If they do persist, contact us at SeaMist or your doctor immediately.
The vast majority of our clients at SeaMist swear by our BOTOX treatments and have returned for more sessions.
