Botox ® Cosmetic

 

Botox Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines, crows feet and more.

Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles giving you a more refreshed appearance.

Botox Cosmetic is an injectable purified protein derivative. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form and is administered in extremely diluted dosages.

Treatment takes about 10 minutes and involves a few tiny injections. A very small needle is used to inject the Botox into the muscle. There is minimal discomfort. Following the procedure you may experience a very small bruise at the injection site. Improvement can be seen within several days and lasts up to 4 months.

Botox has been safely used for ophthalmic disorders for over 10 years. When Botox was used to treat ophthalmic patients, one physician noticed that the lines around her patients eyes improved. In April 2001, Botox Cosmetic was cleared for use in Canada for patients with facial wrinkles. Since then many satisfied people have been safely treated.

How does Botox Cosmetic work?

A - Botox Cosmetic is an injectable purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum organism, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form over time. It is administered in extremely dilute dosages. Botox Cosmetic is injected into the muscle that is creating the wrinkle. When it is injected into the muscle it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the area and the muscle relaxes.
