It is certainly not fun to feel refreshed and still have someone say you look tired, sad, or angry. It may feel like your only option for a youthful appearance is a surgical procedure, but this is not the case. Injectable treatments like BOTOX Cosmetic may not only reduce the stressed-out “tired” look on your face, but may also improve wrinkles and lines on your forehead, by your eyes, and even around your nose. Contact the office of Michael I. Jacobs to schedule an initial consultation and find out how BOTOX can change your life.
What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a treatment that will temporarily relax the lines and wrinkles on your face. It is a protein that, when administered in small doses, can control the muscles that cause wrinkles. BOTOX disrupts communication between the nerve and the muscle. When the connection is interrupted, the muscle cannot contract which causes the lines to smooth out.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a minimally invasive procedure that takes only minutes to administer. It is directly injected into the muscle and is virtually painless.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?
BOTOX is only effective and useful with wrinkles that move. While there are other uses for BOTOX, the most popular areas include:
- Around the eyes
- In between the brows
- On the forehead
In addition to reducing the appearance of pesky lines and wrinkles, BOTOX Cosmetic can also be used to reduce the effects of hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a condition related to excessive sweating that may impact daily life.
Is BOTOX Cosmetic Safe?
BOTOX Cosmetic is FDA-approved for moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles. This injectable treatment is safe in the small doses given by the highly trained professionals at the office of Michael Jacobs.
What Results Could I Expect?
Most people start seeing results within a few days after treatment, and results typically gradually improve for up to a month after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX?
Most healthy adults can be good candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic. If you have moderate-to-severe wrinkles and lines around your eyes, eyebrows, and forehead, you could consider BOTOX. BOTOX can treat other areas of the face as well. Talk to the qualified staff at the office of Michael Jacobs about your goals.
Are BOTOX Cosmetic Results Permanent?
No – BOTOX usually lasts about three to four months. You will need to come back for follow-up treatments for more results. A series of regular treatments may help you achieve and maintain your results.
