BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Spoil yourself today

BOTOX® Cosmetic (a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria) has been used safely by ophthalmologists for over 10 years. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990s with no serious side effects documented.

How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.

A protein toxin produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria, BOTOX® Cosmetic eliminates the facial wrinkles that occur with overuse of facial muscles.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure

A small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It may take a few days to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect after receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Recovery and Results

Some of the common areas treated include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.

A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is quick and results usually last three to six months. After that you may return for a follow-up injection. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic appears to last longer, often up to several months.

The most common complication is a slight, temporary drooping of the eyelid. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body so you can return to full activity immediately.
