The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has once again ranked Botulinum T as the most popular of all medically administered cosmetic procedures. The cosmetic form of Botulinum T is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet near the eyes. The toxins block the nerve impulses and temporarily relaxes the muscles which cause wrinkles. Botulinum T is injected in a solution into the treatment areas. Results can last for up to 4 months.
What are the benefits of Botulinum T treatment?
Creates a youthful, more refreshed appearance
Reduces the visible signs of wrinkles
Results visible in 2-3 days but can take up to a week
Results may last for up to 4-6 months
Is Botulinum T treatment painful?
Discomfort is minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, your practitioner may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
Who should not use Botulinum T?
Botulinum T should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botulinum T will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What will happen to the frown lines between my brows if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.
