Botox Cosmetic is a widely popular treatment (according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons over seven million injections of Botox Cosmetic are administered every year). Botox Cosmetic is a prescription drug that gets injected into facial muscles to, temporarily, improve the appearance of skin on the face. It is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of skin at the edges of the eyes, crow’s feet, and at the frown lines—the skin between the brow (clinically the frown lines are termed glabellar lines). These areas are called, clinically, indications. Crow’s feet and glabellar lines are two distinct indications. Recently, the FDA approved Botox Cosmetic to treat moderate to severe wrinkles over the forehead, allowing for a third.
How Does Botox Cosmetic Work on Forehead Lines and Wrinkles?
Basically, the Botox Cosmetic medicine gets injected into muscle sites on the forehead. The medicine then relaxes the muscles in the forehead enough that they cannot be lifted. If forehead muscles cannot be lifted then the lines in the forehead can’t form—simple. In addition to smoothing out these forehead lines, Botox Cosmetic will also help prevent the forehead lines from getting any deeper.
Consultation for Botox
You will want to have a consultation before getting an injection of Botox, especially in an area such as the forehead. After having Botox Cosmetic injected you may see almost immediate results—24 to 48 hours following a treatment. These aesthetic results can last for up to four months after a treatment. While Botox Cosmetics, like any type of drug, can be accompanied with certain temporary side-effects, in most cases there is little to no recovery time. And a treatment of Botox can be administered in approximately 30 minutes, so it will take very little time out of your day. And, because Central Wellness offers a complimentary makeup touchup following an injection, you can stop in and get back with your day in short order.
