Botox Cosmetic Treatments

If you are bothered by facial lines and wrinkles, consider treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a brand name for a type of neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In medical and cosmetic applications, BOTOX is used as a muscle relaxant to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by paralyzing or weakening the muscles that cause them. It is commonly used in aesthetic treatments to achieve a smoother and more youthful facial appearance.

BOTOX is safe for men and women (over 18) in good overall health who experience unwanted facial lines and wrinkles caused by the movement of muscles in the following areas of the face:

  • Horizontal Forehead Lines
  • Glabellar Frown Lines
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Drooping Brow
  • Bunny lines along the bridge of the nose

 
Individuals who should not undergo BOTOX treatments are those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, allergic to botulinum toxin, as well as those with neuromuscular diseases. To learn if you are a candidate for BOTOX, request a consultation today.
