Discover Botox® Cosmetic

The secret’s out! It’s not re-touching… It’s BOTOX® Cosmetic (Allergan/botoxcosmetic.com).

Once thought of as a red-carpet only luxury to smooth wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic has evolved, becoming a lunchtime procedure for millions of Americans. You’ve seen it in the media, and perhaps you’ve heard talk amongst friends or co-workers; now you’re wondering, is it my turn to treat myself to BOTOX® Cosmetic? We pose this question to you: Are you ready to significantly improve your expression lines? Friends will take notice of your youthful radiance, but they won’t know your secret! They may wonder if you styled your hair differently, or maybe you’ve been working out? The secret will be yours to tell!

FDA approved to treat the “11’s,” or frown lines between the brows, BOTOX® Cosmetic is also commonly used off-label to smooth expression lines of the forehead and around the eyes. What other areas can be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic? By knowing precisely which muscles to target, the skilled injectors of Skin Speaks: Advancements in Dermatology and Spa M.D. can promote lifting of the corners of the mouth or eye brows, soften “bunny lines” on the nose, lessen the appearance of a squared jaw, plus treat multiple areas of the lower face and even the neck.

Why BOTOX® Cosmetic? BOTOX® Cosmetic pioneered the research of Botulinum Toxin in aesthetic medicine, launching in 2002 when it became the first treatment of its kind to receive approval from the FDA; it’s been 10 years, and counting! Did you know that the same formulation of BOTOX® Cosmetic was approved by the FDA in 1989 as BOTOX® for medical use? In other words, BOTOX® has been used for over 20 years! It’s been extensively researched with approximately 2,400 studies (Allergan/botoxcosmetic.com), which is HUGE! BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 prescribed product of its kind in the world; over 70 countries have approved BOTOX® Cosmetic for aesthetic use. Since 2002, over 11 million treatments have been performed! Study results have shown a 97% rate of satisfaction, an impressive and dependable number!

What is it? BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein called a biologic.  Biologics are unique and complex, which is why there is no such thing as a generic form of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

How does it work? Stubborn expression lines form after years of repeated muscle activity; these lines can remain even when your muscles are at rest.  BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces the muscle activity responsible for the formation of expression lines by calming the nerve impulses to targeted muscles. This quiets the muscles ability to contract and leads to fabulous softening and smoothing of expression lines. In 10 days or less, real improvement occurs with results that have been proven to last up to 4 months!

Is there any recovery time after the procedure? NO! BOTOX® Cosmetic is a 10 minute procedure with no surgery and no down time. After treatment, exercise should be avoided for six hours.
