It often comes as a shock when early signs of aging appear on your face. You might have noticed vertical “frown lines” between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or perhaps “crow’s feet” radiating from the corners of your eyes. No one is immune to wrinkles; just squinting in the bright sunlight or concentrating at a board meeting can create facial lines over time. This type of wrinkle, created by muscle movement, is called a “dynamic wrinkle” and BOTOX Cosmetic is designed to target the cause. It is easy to refresh the youthful look of your face with “just a little something,” in Naples, Florida.
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments are quick, simple injections that can effectively improve your facial wrinkles, while maintaining your ability to make natural facial expressions—an essential part of what keeps you looking like you.
It is not a dermal filler like Radiesse® or JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel; instead, BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles every time they contract. Within a few days of treatment, targeted wrinkles begin to fade, leaving skin looking smoother and more youthful.
What does a BOTOX treatment involve?
When patients visit us for BOTOX Cosmetic treatments in our Naples office, they don’t have to invest hours for treatment or days for recovery. You can enhance your appearance with a quick office visit and no required downtime. We inject BOTOX Cosmetic into specific facial muscles, often close to the targeted wrinkles, using a fine needle. There is minimal pain that many patients describe as a pinprick or bug bite sensation.
Improvements usually last between 3 to 6 months, and can often be maintained with periodic touch-up treatments.
