Lines and deep wrinkles in the face are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles that happen when you smile, laugh, or frown. BOTOX Cosmetic, a purified protein derivative, can effectively minimize, prevent, and reverse many of the lines between your eyebrows, across your forehead, and around your eyes.
BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles related to expression, which prevents them from contracting. It’s been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles and frown lines, as well as a variety of medical conditions including ophthalmological and neurological disorders. BOTOX Cosmetic can also help reduce chin dimples, drooping mouth corners, prominent bands in the neck, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the hands and armpits.
Each BOTOX Cosmetic session consists of several tiny injections into the targeted muscle. These injections last three to six months and are a popular non-surgical treatment for reducing the signs of aging. When the muscles begin to wake up and wrinkles reappear, you may choose to schedule another appointment. As skilled skin care experts, the Board-Certified Dermatologists and licensed Providers at Alaska Center for Dermatology ensure a safe and effective treatment resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Depending on your age, you may be able to use BOTOX Cosmetic in a variety of ways. Learn about BOTOX Cosmetic in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s here.
