BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment used around the world. While it has many uses, some of which are off-label uses, we tend to see it most frequently used for those fine lines and wrinkles found around the eyes and across the forehead. Often called crow’s feet, fine crinkles that are located at the outer edges of your eyes may demonstrate a life well-lived. However, they can also make you appear older than you really are and may decrease your confidence. With BOTOX®, we can get rid of those lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® is a totally safe and effective solution for treating those fine lines and wrinkles of the skin that are most commonly called expression lines. Expression lines are those lines that appear on your face when you are smiling, grimacing or making another expression. Crow’s feet is a type of expression line. When your face is at rest, the lines smooth away. They are different from static lines, which are deeply engraved in your skin.
When injected in a very tiny dosage, BOTOX® can temporarily relax the tiny muscles located just beneath your skin. Once these muscles are relaxed, they can no longer crinkle the skin that lies directly over them. This will help to create a smoother appearance, especially around your eyes (if you were dealing with crow’s feet).
A single BOTOX® treatment should only take minutes, making this treatment option great for those busy adults who have many activities on their calendars. In fact, many of our clients come to us during a quick break from their other obligations. Because there is no downtime or recovery time needed, you’ll immediately be able to return to your normal daily activities following your treatment.
To keep up your good results, you must be sure to schedule follow-up appointments with us as needed. With continued treatments, you may be able to go even longer between appointments.
