What Areas can BOTOX® Cosmetic Treat?August 21, 2014
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an effective treatment for wrinkles that will help you restore a youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been excellent in the removal of wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines.
There are some misconceptions about where BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used. A lot of people believe treatments can be applied wherever you see lines or wrinkles. This is far from true. BOTOX® Cosmetic shows the most impact where lines are the result of active pulling of muscles beneath the skin. These usually take place around the upper face, primarily in the forehead, the glabella and around the eyes.
Deeper, finer lines – such as those that can form around the mouth – will be more effectively treated using other minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures.
There are some types of wrinkles that BOTOX® Cosmetic will not help with. This includes drooping and sagging deposits of skin.
When performed by a licensed practitioner, BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe and effective at minimizing that aged look wrinkles bring to the face. During your initial consultation, Dr. Brown and Dr. Bruno will discuss your procedure with you in detail to ensure you make a fully informed decision before moving forward.
