BOTOX® COSMETIC INJECTIONS
AN INJECTABLE OPTION TO SOFTEN THE APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. When you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA injection) is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure around the eyes and one of the most popular choices at Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute.
This minimally invasive injection uses a prescription medicine that contains a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA. When injected, BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath your skin to target the underlying causes of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
Over 10 million applications have been administered in the United States since 2002. Millions of people have made BOTOX® Cosmetic the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.
The actual injection process is relatively quick and typically takes about 10 minutes. You’ll have minimal downtime or recovery and will be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office. You’ll look like yourself, only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet!
After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of these injections typically last up to four months.
