Elements such as the wind and sunlight, coupled with the natural process of aging, take a toll on our bodies—especially our face. As we get older, our once youthful expressions begin to create permanent creases and wrinkles in our brow and between our eyes, making us look older than we actually are. If you’ve tried every over-the-counter cream and lotion on the market, and nothing has worked, then BOTOX® Cosmetic may be right for you. BOTOX® Cosmetic has worked for millions of men and women.
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Patients report an improvement within just days after their treatment, with results lasting from three to six months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of those surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better one month after treatment. Dr. Harris has many satisfied patients who have experienced excellent results with BOTOX® Cosmetic. It is also effective in smoothing crow’s feet, wrinkled lip lines, and neckband creases.
The procedure is quite simple and no anesthesia is required, an ice pack applied to the area before treatment is all you need. Dr. Harris will first determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals. He will then administer several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause the frown lines between the brows. Our patients report that there is little discomfort during treatment, comparing the sensation to that of a pin prick. Patients are able to resume normal activity immediately. The procedure is so easy that you can have it done during your lunch break.
Botox is a vital tool that may either stand alone or complement another treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. The softening effect on your face makes you look refreshed and younger.
