Botox®Cosmetic (Allergan) is a very effective treatment to remove the appearance of wrinkles and furrows in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes and mouth.
Wrinkles are formed as the face muscles contract in order to laugh, smile or frown. Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the overactive muscles whose repeated contractions cause lines between your brows to form. You can frown, smile, or look surprised– without the furrows, creases and wrinkles. The results are usually seen within three to five days. The duration of the benefit is extended with each successive treatment.
Our patients are pleased with the results of their Botox® Cosmetic treatments and enjoy their more youthful appearance.
