How do we get wrinkles?
Many wrinkles are actually creases created by making the same expression again and again and by prolonged exposure to UV light. These are called "expression lines" or dynamic wrinkles (this includes frown lines, crow's feet around the eyes, and forehead lines). These wrinkles can add years to our appearance and often making us look tired, worried or even angry when we are not!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.
BOTOX® Cosmetic does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. You can stop BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments at any time and you will gradually return to your pre-treatment appearance. Regular use of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will lead to a long term reduction in wrinkles, in particular if you are careful to protect that skin from sun exposure and smoke.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment which can help you to control your facial expressions so that you don't look angry, tired or worried. In other words it helps you to get back whatever the years had taken from your natural beauty. If wrinkles are starting to make you look older or more negative, BOTOX® Cosmetic will help restore the rested, confident and refreshed appearance you desire.
