In the battle against the effects of aging, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become one of the most popular available options. In a single treatment, BOTOX® produces quick, long-lasting results that are simple and non-invasive.
Lines appear on your forehead and between your eyebrows as a result of tightening of your muscles as a result of stress or habit. After years of stress-related frowning, these lines can become deep furrows. In many cases, these lines make you look older than you are, or make you look perpetually angry or worried. Fine lines and wrinkles can also develop around the mouth through a similar process. These lines are especially common with smokers, who purse their lips repeatedly while smoking.
BOTOX® is administered in small doses directly into the muscles that cause these furrows to appear. The muscles become relaxed, easing frown lines and brow wrinkles. The effects will last as long as four to six months.
A typical BOTOX® treatment is administered in our offices at Mid Florida Eye and takes less than an hour. BOTOX® is injected in carefully measured doses into the muscles. The fine-gauge needles used for injections cause little to no discomfort, and you can return to everyday activities immediately. For more information on how BOTOX® can help you look and feel younger, please contact the office with any questions or to schedule an initial consultation.
