Call to learn how you can erase frown lines today.
Botox is a purified toxin that halts the muscle activity for some of the most common wrinkles and lines that occur with aging. The cosmetic injectable softens the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, and crow’s feet around the eyes by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles. The nurses at Laser Center of Milford are well-trained in applying Botox in just the right places so you achieve optimal results.
The injectable is in use in 96 countries and approved for cosmetic use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The effects of Botox are temporary, but effective. Repeat treatments help you maintain your look for the long-term.
After your Botox injections, you can plan to go back to all your regular activities, including work, school, exercise, and daily chores. You may have mild bruising or swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects are easily covered up with makeup.
Once injected, the Botox takes about three hours to get down to the relevant muscles. You notice a start to smoothing in 24-48 hours with full results apparent in seven days.
You maintain results for 3-4 months, depending on the area treated and your muscles’ reaction. You can schedule repeat injections regularly to maintain your new, smoother look. The team at Laser Center of Milford can put you on a treatment schedule.
The team at Laser Center of Milford use a fine needle to apply Botox injections at multiple points on your face. You do feel a pinch during the injection, but each one is brief and the sensation is minimal. Most people tolerate the treatment quite well.
You experience no lingering sensation after treatment; discomfort is limited to the few seconds of the injection. If you’re concerned about sensation, talk to the providers about using a topical numbing cream or ice prior to treatment.
