Botox Cosmetic can treat the vertical lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines across the forehead, and fine lines around the eyes. Botox works best for preventing lines from forming in the first place while softening existing lines and erasing the signs of aging. Botox treatments present the best opportunity for wrinkle prevention over any other treatment on the market today. Typical dosages for Botox Cosmetic treatments vary for each patient. Average doses: 20 units in the glabella region (area between the eyebrows causing vertical lines), 8-20 units in the forehead (horizontal lines), and 20-24 units in the crows’ feet (lines around the eyes).

How Botox works: Botox works to relax your muscles and stop the repetitive movements that cause creasing (lines, wrinkles) in the skin. Botox is not an instant fix, as it takes between 7-10 days to take full effect. At this time when your Botox is actively relaxing your targeted muscle, you can expect your skin to respond by softening and relaxing as well. If you have existing lines, such as between the eyebrows, your skin will continue to soften, smooth and improve as you continue treatments. Your Botox treatment’s effect will last on average 3-6 months. You may return for treatment as you see fits you best based on the lasting results you see in the mirror. We recommend a consistent schedule to maintain amazing result.
Is Botox safe? Botox is a safe, purified protein that has been treating patients for over 25 years. It works by inhibiting the nerve impulses to the targeted muscle, thereby inhibiting muscle movement that causes permanent wrinkles.
