As we age, the effects of stress and exhaustion on the aesthetic of the face can make us appear older than we really are – specifically with the appearance of heavy frown lines in the brow and along the forehead. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can help to rejuvenate your facial features and give you a more youthful, healthy appearance. At Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic as a minimally invasive, non-surgical way to enhance your overall look.
Unlike Restylane® injection treatment, which works by plumping up the skin with injected fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections work by adjusting the behavior of the muscles underneath the wrinkled skin. Specifically designed to eliminate the appearance of heavy frown lines in the brow, this treatment provides highly effective but temporary relief from the angry, concerned appearance that some people develop with age. Indeed, BOTOX® Cosmetic is so easy and effective that it has become one of the most frequently performed procedures at office of Dr. Mark E. Richards.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is inserted into the muscles of the brow via a few very small injections in one quick procedure — usually five minutes or less. The tiny amounts of toxin then disrupt the activity of the overly tense muscles, smoothing the brow and leaving it fresh and young-looking once more. Despite the fact that it is derived from a toxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic is completely safe, virtually painless, and only very rarely causes serious side effects. The effects will become visible within a few days after the treatment and last up to four months, at which point the injection can be repeated.
If you would like to try out this immensely popular treatment for yourself, please contact Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute about setting up a free BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation.
