Botox for Wrinkles and More
Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure for both women and men due to its remarkable results. It can help make you look years younger and feel more confident in a short amount of time. Botox Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
What is Botox Cosmetic
Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein produced from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a safe, reliable, injectable muscle relaxing medication which blocks the actions of certain nerves. Muscle relaxing proteins, called neuromodulators, are currently the most commonly used cosmetic tools for rejuvenation, improvement, and enhancement. Botox is an FDA approved, non-surgical, physician-administered injectable treatment that has been proven effective and safe for a variety of uses for over 15 years.
What to Expect
Botox Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface. When used on facial wrinkles and fine lines, it targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. Injections are performed with a tiny needle and are done quickly. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, you may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
The Botox Cosmetic Procedure
The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following a Botox Cosmetic treatment. In fact, it’s often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure” because the individual can go about their normal routine immediately after they leave the medical office. Injections with botulinum toxin are generally well tolerated and there are few side effects
The results from Botox Cosmetic injections can make the eyebrows arch a bit higher to open up the eyes. It can soften the angry appearance of the “11″ lines and may also reduce the worried appearance of a lined forehead. All of this can be done without making you look unnatural. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, and within days, you should see a marked improvement in the frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for four months. For hyperhidrosis, results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within two weeks. Dryness can last four to twelve months, depending on the individual and the severity of the issue.
How does Botox Cosmetic Work
As a neuromodulator, Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause the contractions which develop into wrinkles. Our everyday expressions are created by these muscle contractions, but as we age our skin loses its ability to stay elastic. As a result, wrinkles form and become deeper. The “frown lines” between the brows materialize over time as the result of this facial activity.
By relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles, Botox lets the skin rest and smooths out the wrinkles. Fewer muscle contractions mean smoother, tighter, and wrinkle-free skin for both women and men.
Botox is injected directly into the muscles between and works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected areas. Although the results are noticeable, a proper treatment with Botox will not radically change your facial appearance. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert. The muscle activity that causes lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows. You should experience subtle, natural facial relaxation.

Botox is an FDA approved method for treating extreme sweating. Although Botox is predominantly used as a treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, this injectable can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis, a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. It works by stopping the nerve signals that cause the sweat glands to go into overdrive, saving patients from extensive sweating in inappropriate situations. Results show an 82 to 87 percent decrease in sweating with Botox as it acts as a shield for sweat glands.

Chronic Migraines Treatment
There are people who suffer from chronic migraines which result in debilitating headaches, light sensitivity, and nausea for fifteen or more days out of a month. Their suffering affects their quality of life and their ability to interact with others.
Botox is now FDA approved for treatment for chronic migraines. The process involves a series of strategically placed injections done approximately every three months. Relief may take a few months for full effectiveness.

Botox Cosmetic Safety
Botox Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. In 2004, the FDA approved Botox for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Research supports that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head, and face (craniofacial), and other relatively small body areas (like under the breasts) with Botox is safe and effective. And in 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Botox injections for the prevention of chronic migraines in adults

Botox Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic and cosmetic treatments available. The results are supported in over 400 clinical trials and articles in scientific and medical journals. In 2017, there were 7.23 million procedures with Botox in the United States alone.
