What is BOTOX® and is it safe?
BOTOX® is a purified protein that is injected in a very small amount, very precisely, into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows. BOTOX® injections have been used safely and effectively for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. Laser Aesthetic Center buys its BOTOX® directly from Allergan, the only FDA approved source in the U.S.

How does BOTOX® work?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. BOTOX® is injected into the targeted muscle, blocking its ability to contract thereby relaxing the muscle.

This causes the overlying skin to become smoother, with fewer lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression and feeling to be unaffected.

How quickly will I see results?
BOTOX® starts relaxing the treated area within days, but the appearance of the treated area will continue to improve for up to a week.

What happens after the treatment?
There is no downtime after the procedure. Discomfort is minimal and brief. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness and/or bleeding/bruising may occur.

Have patients been happy with the results?
According to a survey conducted in 2005 by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation most patients were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX® Cosmetic.

BOTOX® was the most popular physician administered cosmetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical), according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery(ASAPS). The ASAPS also estimates that 3.3 million treatments were performed in 2005 alone.
