BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. The popularity of BOTOX® is due to its ease of use and effectiveness in treating common types of wrinkles. These injections can reduce wrinkles of the brow (frown lines), eyes (crow’s feet), lips and neck. BOTOX® can also be used to treat bunny lines (when you crinkle your nose), marionette lines and smoker's lines. It can be used to shape the eyebrows, correct facial asymmetry, and smooth vertical and horizontal neck lines by relaxing the platysmal (neck) muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are popular because of the numerous advantages they offer, including safe and effective treatment of many types of wrinkles, quick procedure with little recovery time, quick clinical results, and ideal complement to laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers.
BOTOX® utilizes a natural, purified protein that is administered at very low doses to reduce the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time. While the results are dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic appear within a few days and generally last from four to six months.
Many facial wrinkles are the result of nerve cells that have been conditioned to tell muscles to contract. Because we so often contract muscles in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, the nerves begin telling the muscles to remain contracted. BOTOX® blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause. With a series of quick injections, you can see dramatic reductions in these types of wrinkles can be achieved. We offer BOTOX® treatments at our Houston location and surrounding areas, including Webster, Clearlake, Friendswood, Pearland, League City, Seabrook, Deerpark, and Kemah.
