WHAT BOTOX® COSMETIC IS.
A BOTOX Cosmetic (BOtulinum TOXin type A) treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time. One ten-minute treatment - a few tiny injections - relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months. BOTOX Cosmetic has been widely tested. Now it's approved by the FDA.
The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, BOTOX Cosmetic virtually erases these lines. Unlike surgery, BOTOX Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With BOTOX Cosmetic they'll know you've done something, they just won't know what.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM BOTOX COSMETIC.
Dr Geron will determine exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although Dr Geron may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief - most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. It is unlikely you will develop significant side effects, although some people develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup. You may resume normal activity immediately.
Within days, you'll see a marked improvement which may continue to improve for a long as a week and should last up to four months. BOTOX Cosmetic relaxes the overactive muscles whose repeated contractions cause the lines between your brows to form. So you can frown, smile, or look surprised - without the furrows, creases, and wrinkles.
