There is no dispute. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly effective treatment to address the formation of frown lines and crow’s feet. Dr. Robert Louton has been using BOTOX® Cosmetic to help patients soften muscular wrinkles for more than 20 years. In his experienced hands, BOTOX® can produce results that allow for some natural movement while still achieving the desired effect on wrinkles and furrows – almost painlessly.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein that relaxes muscle. When injected into precise points in the facial muscles, the injectable prevents the nerve reaction necessary for the injected muscles to contract. The result is not paralysis; it is a reduction in the ability to make specific facial expressions that create wrinkles and deep folds in your skin.
Younger patients can halt the formation of frown lines and crow’s feet, while patients who have already developed these conditions will see varying degrees of improvement, from complete erasure to very visible softening. Dysport®, a product similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, has the same effect, but because its protein is smaller, it can work even faster in some cases.
At Blair Plastic Surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® may be injected into three individual sites:
- Between the brow (glabella)
- The forehead
- The crow’s feet (outer aspect of the eyes)
While there is no downtime, results are typically visible in two to three days but may take up to a week to fully develop. Results will last three to four months or more. Side effects are rare, including a mild post injection headache. But if you are like most recipients, you’ll experience a blissful break from headaches.
