BOTOX Cosmetic is an amazing way to reduce or eliminate wrinkles of the face and neck. As Dr. Reichel always quotes, “BOTOX will buy you WRINKLE FREE TIME”. With tiny little injections, BOTOX is effective for frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet. It can also improve lines around the mouth, and can be used to smooth neck lines. BOTOX is injected under the skin to help relax the muscles, dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Most people should start to see wrinkles smooth out within one week.
BOTOX has the highest rating of satisfaction among all cosmetic procedures. It is also very safe. Many of our first time patients ask, “Is BOTOX a poison?” The answer is, not when it is used for cosmetic treatments. BOTOX is a purified protein. BOTOX mimics one of the proteins in the nerve-muscle complex. When injected, it binds to a receptor causing the muscle to ignore the signals from the nerve. So when your brain tells the muscle to contract, the muscle can’t respond. Remember, the amount of BOTOX that is required for cosmetic purposes is very low, making it an extremely safe treatment.
The effects of BOTOX last an average of four months, but we find that with repeat injections, it can last much longer. And, even if you only choose to have the injections once or twice a year, it still "buys you wrinkle free time". What does this mean? Well, say that BOTOX relaxes the muscle for 6 months but you only inject it once a year. After 10 years, your wrinkles will still be 5 years younger. With regular injections, even deep frown lines can disappear completely! There’s a reason why BOTOX is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States with nearly 3 million people receiving injections every year!
Besides treating wrinkles, BOTOX is also used to treat excess sweating, headaches, and even depression. Excess sweating is called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a genetic condition that can interrupt work, and daily life. If you suffer from excess sweating, please ask us about treatment. BOTOX injections can give amazing results for this condition.
