At the Aesthetic Center in Darien Botox Cosmetic is used as a prescription drug that, when injected, temporarily paralyzes muscles. It contains a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A, which is produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Manufactured by Allergan, Inc., it is used to treat permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin that are formed by the continual contraction of facial muscles. In addition to its cosmetic applications, it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.

Applications For BOTOX Cosmetic Injections

According to the 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, over seven million people nationwide received Botox in 2018, making Botox one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed. The popular neuromodulator is even gaining popularity with men. Over one million men have chosen Botox in the past three years as their go-to injection treatment to minimize crow’s feet, frown lines, and other fine lines and wrinkles.

Although originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms, Botox Cosmetic was quickly recognized for its cosmetic value. Properly placed injections of Botox Cosmetic block nerve impulses sent to muscles, weakening them to the point where they cannot contract, and temporarily eliminating moderately severe furrows and lines. BOTOX injections are used to treat the following:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Skin bands on the neck

Xeomin results are noticeable within five to seven days and will last up to four months. Our expert aesthetic specialists will discuss all your options to determine if Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or other surgical or non-surgical treatments are suitable to target your areas of concern.

BOTOX Injections: Cosmetic Procedure And Results

Using a very fine needle, BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows and lines. Receiving the injections requires no anesthetic, but some doctors choose to numb the area to be injected with ice packs or a topical anesthetic cream. Results can usually be seen within a few days of treatment, and typically last up to four months, although areas that are treated on a regular basis may retain results longer. Injections should be given only by qualified medical professionals.
