BOTOX CosmeticWhat You Want to Know
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
It is a purified protein administered in a simple nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to sever frown lines between the browns. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
Is BOTOX safe?
BOTOX has been used for over 16 years in more than 75 countries to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. It is also FDA evaluated and approved.
What is the difference between BOTOX and fillers?
While fillers fill in facial lines, BOTOX works underneath the skin to target the muscles and relax the tension causing the frown lines between the brows.
Can’t I just use a cream?
There is no clinical evidence that supports that topical creams work better than BOTOX. Topical creams work well on the surface of the skin, but can’t go below the surface to relax the muscles that cause the frown lines to form.
Can I afford BOTOX?
To treat the “11,” BOTOX typically ranges between $250 and $350 – about $3 on a daily basis.
Does BOTOX build up in the body over time?
No, BOTOX does not accumulate in the body.
Who can administer BOTOX?
BOTOX should only be administered by experienced physicians and surgeons.
Will BOTOX leave me with a frozen face or unnatural look?
At Waterstone, we take a very tasteful approach to the use of BOTOX. The procedure is very much technique-sensitive and when administered by an experienced physician, such as Dr. Urano, you should not lose the ability to show expression.
Do I need BOTOX even if I have had plastic surgery?
Even after surgery, strong frown muscles can still be active in forming the “11” lines between the brows. In fact, most plastic surgeons now incorporate BOTOX Cosmetic into their treatment for unwanted wrinkles and creases.
