How does Botox work?
Botox injections work by interrupting the communication between nerves that trigger micromuscular facial movements. These unnecessary facial movements are responsible for causing fine lines and wrinkles.
What happens during treatment?
Botox is injected with a tiny needle directly and precisely into the muscle that causes moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. It is an in-office treatment that lasts 15 to 20 minutes, making it a procedure that can be done during your lunch break. Dr. Rokhsar is a fellowship-trained dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, which makes him an expert on wrinkle treatments and skin smoothing procedures.
How does Botox Cosmetic compare to other options?
Compared to other aesthetic treatment options, Botox Cosmetic is relatively inexpensive. According to a survey by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, you may find Botox Cosmetic to be a great way to invest in yourself.
What does Botox treat?
Botox Cosmetic treats the cause of these frown lines between the brows by reducing the muscle contractions that cause the lines to form over time. Botox Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. If you’re looking for something for that area between your brows, be sure to talk to Dr. Rokhsar about Botox Cosmetic.
How soon will I see a difference?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week. By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89 percent of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better.
What kind of results can I expect?
Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment. Other side effects include pain and redness where the medicine is injected, pain in the face, and muscle weakness. These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own.
