Botox® Cosmetic is a safe non-invasive FDA approved method for the treatment of frown lines and wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 and older for temporary improvement in the look of wrinkles.
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows and forehead remain-even when your muscles aren’t moving.
With Botox® Cosmetic, you can get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself. So, you can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases between your browns and forehead.
Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a quick procedure, lasting minutes that requires no downtime or recovery-it’s often called a lunchtime procedure
With a few tiny injections, Botox® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead and other areas of the face, reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines for real, noticeable results.
At Nu Yu Aesthetic Medical Center, all injectable procedures are performed by the doctor who is on site every day.
Botox® Cosmetic starts to work within 24 to 48 hours. In clinical trials, a majority of people saw significant improvement at 7 days, with results continuing to improve for up to a month.
Visible results with Botox® Cosmetic have proven to last up to 4 months. Your results may vary depending on the time between treatments, the site of injections, and treatment with Botox® Cosmetic in the past. Most patients average about 4-5 treatments with Botox® Cosmetic per yea., and with repeated treatments the results may last longer.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks and complications. Tell your doctor if you are currently pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, breastfeeding, have any muscle or nerve conditions (eg myasthenia gravis, Lambert Eaton Syndrome) and all your medical conditions. Please call us at Nu Yu Med Spa for your free consultation with the doctor to determine if Botox® Cosmetic is right for you and to answer any questions you may have regarding Botox® Cosmetic.
At Nu Yu Med Spa, our goal is to minimize any discomfort and offer the ultimate spa experience for our discerning clients. Most patients require only an ice compress before and during administration of Botox Cosmetic to make it comfortable as it is a quick procedure. However, some clients prefer to have a topical anesthetic applied to the area prior to the injection. Each client’s pain tolerance is assessed prior to the procedure and every effort is made to make the procedure as painless as possible.
Botox® Cosmetic is injected into the desired area(s)/muscles being treated with a fine needle, client’s usually experience a small burning sensation while the solution is being injected. The procedure takes minutes and there may be a minor red marks after the procedure that dissipate soon after, and you may resume your normal activities thereafter. Aftercare instructions are provided to the client following the procedure.
Botox® Cosmetic is used most commonly to treat frown lines, located between the eyes, but can also be used to treat crow’s feet (the lines surrounding the eyes), forehead lines, bunny lines and loose neck bands. Botox® Cosmetic can also be used to treat hyperhydrosis (or excessive underarm sweating) to help decrease profuse sweating, as well as treating sweaty palms.
