Facial Rejuvenation with Botox® Cosmetic  

(*add some "wrinkle-resistance" to your smile!) 

What causes facial wrinkles?  

The appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and laugh lines result from the movement of the muscles of facial expression which lie beneath the skin. Over time, as the overactive facial muscles contract, the skin folds and wrinkles develop. Furthermore, the skin becomes less elastic with age, resulting in persistent and stubborn facial lines.

Botox® Cosmetic. 

Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. When very small amounts of Botox® Cosmetic are injected directly into the muscles of facial expression, the ability to contract these muscles is blocked. Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles of facial expression and reduces the muscle activity that causes facial wrinkles to form over time. By relaxing the wrinkle-causing muscles of the face, Botox® Cosmetic creates a smoother and improved appearance. 

The Botox® Cosmetic procedure. 

Botox® Cosmetic treatment is customized for every patient, depending on his or her particular needs. Treatment can be performed in areas involving the forehead, eyes, mouth, and neck regions. No anesthesia is required since Botox® Cosmetic injections are tiny and virtually painless. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward.

Post-treatment information. 

Following treatment with Botox® Cosmetic, patients may experience localized tenderness, mild swelling, redness, or slight bruising near the treatment sites. These side effects resolve quickly and normal activities can be performed immediately. Another possible side effect is temporary weakness of nearby muscles and in rare cases, an eyelid may droop. Since treatment with Botox® Cosmetic is completely reversible, any side effect is only a temporary condition. You will begin to see results within a few days  and the esthetic effects will continue to improve for up to two weeks. The esthetic results of Botox® Cosmetic can last up to 4 - 5 months and with continued treatment, the effects may last even longer. Results may vary.

Safety and satisfaction. 

Botox® Cosmetic has been used safely and successfully for the treatment of facial wrinkles since it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2002. It is approved in more than 75 countries worldwide. Almost 3.3 million procedures were performed in 2005 alone. In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), ranked Botox® Cosmetic as the most popular physician/dentist administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row. The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation reported that 97% of patients were satisfied with the results of their Botox® Cosmetic treatment.
