BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Sun City Laser offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to help smooth the skin and slow the process of wrinkle and frown line formation. If you’re on the fence, contact us for a free consultation and more information.
Our BOTOX® Services
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.
The Benefits of BOTOX®
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX®: How it Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
While this treatment can make the appearance of current wrinkles and frown lines less apparent, its main purpose is to reduce the muscle activity that actually causes those lines to form in the skin.
The cost is dependent on each individual’s specific goals. In our consultation, our team can give you a better idea of what your treatment may cost.
The recovery time for Botox is near-instant for most people, with patients able to return to normal activities within a few hours at the most.
Number of Treatments Required
Within 1 week, you may notice a softening in the appearance of your moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. It may take up to two weeks for maximum results.
Results have been shown to last up to 4-6 months, after which you may need a follow-up appointment. Your results may vary; be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
Why should I consider BOTOX Cosmetic?
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain even when your muscles aren’t contracting.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
BOTOX Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
