How is a BOTOX treatment performed?
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment requires little time out of the office, so it is possible to have the procedure done during a lunch hour and get back to work quickly. Treatment involves a few small injections and most patients notice an improvement within a few days in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Often the treatment will last 3-4 months and results vary.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time. Having a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is one way that you can invest in your appearance.
A check on the facts: BOTOX® Cosmetic was the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined). The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) estimates that almost 3.3 million treatments were performed in 2005 alone—that’s an increase of almost 16% over 2004.
