Smile, laugh, frown, and make all the facial expressions you want and stop worrying about wrinkles!
|Those unattractive deep wrinkles, lines and furrows between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, across the forehead, and at the corners of the eyes are caused by the repeated action of underlying muscles associated with facial expression. Frown lines make you look older, tired, stressed and produce an angry or sad look that detracts from a pleasant facial appearance.
Now, at the Vein & Laser Center, we can improve these lines without surgery and without scars by a simple injection of Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX). BOTOX is the most popular wrinkle treatment, in fact, the most popular cosmetic procedure of any kind. This treatment consists of injections of tiny amounts of the botulinum A toxin directly into the muscle that lies underneath a wrinkle.
Botox softens wrinkles by blocking the chemicals that normally signal these muscle groups to contract, allowing them to relax. In turn, this smoothes and flattens even your toughest wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance. Botox treatments are simple and safe, and discomfort is minimal.
Botox treatments generally take about 10 to 15 minutes. Using a tiny needle, Dr. Taha injects a minute amount of Botox into precise locations on the face. No sedation is required, and you can resume most non-strenuous activities at once. Results are generally seen within two to seven days after the procedure and last from three to six months.
More recently, Botox has been used in conjunction with wrinkle fillers (such as Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm and others) to increase the longevity of both treatments.
