Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic is registered for treatment of frown lines and approved by FDA.
It helps to reduce or eliminates wrinkles without surgery. It reduces horizontal creases in
forehead, reduces frown lines and minimizes the looks of crows' feet or smile lines around the
eyes. BOTOX provides dramatic effects.
Where did the wrinkles and lines come from?
Is it just aging? Too much sun? Too much stress? In general, how skin ages and wrinkles is a
complex process. It isn't just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, damage
caused by free radicals, and so on; it's a combination of many factors. The lines that appear
between your brows (glabellar lines) actually result from muscle movement and the passage of
time. You may have heard the expression "wearing your emotions on your sleeve," but in reality
you wear them on your face. If you're angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows
together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying
skin, and then, as anyone can see, you're frowning. After years of crinkling and wrinkling,
those glabellar lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose
faces tend to be more animated than men's, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these
lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.
What exactly is Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic?
Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a
non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe
frown lines between the brows. During treatment, very low doses of Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic are
administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn
lines. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed.
Results may vary.
How does Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic work?
Botulinum Toxin is introduced into the muscles and relaxes the tiny facial muscles that cause expression
lines, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled. Botulinum Toxin works on the specific areas
treated. Other muscles like those used to raise the eyebrows are not affected so a natural
expression is maintained and soften the looks. After the injection, it takes 2-3 days to see
the dramatic changes and around 7 days to see the full effect. The treatment will last around
six to nine months, the result will fade away slowly and expression lines slowly return. After
2-3 years of repeated treatment it will gradually require less frequent treatment in the future
to maintain the results. Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time
as the result of muscle activity. Botulinum Toxin is injected directly into the muscles between your brows.
It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the
activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
