My Raleigh, North Ccarolina Plastic Surgery Practice is one of the top users of Botox in the country acccording to our Allergan representative. it is one of the most popular procedures we offer.
BOTOX ® is a protein complex that interferes with muscle contraction. It temporarily blocks nerve stimulation of muscles where it is injected, so that muscle contraction is weakened or inhibited. BOTOX ® has been safely used for many years to treat spasms of the muscles that move the eye...
Botox Cosmetic is a very flexible product. The primary benefit of Botox is to relax muscles in especially between the brows, crow's feet, and forehead. It is also used to treat excessive sweating. Botox also can work for pain (such as migraine headaches) and spacticity.
The benefit of Botox is that it works on everyone within days. Botox works by weakening the muscles that form the wrinkles. Botox, when injected by a skilled injector, should make you look rested and beautiful. You should not look "frozen" or overdone. You should look better and people should be unsure why you look so good!
If you are concerned about frown lines caused by muscle contraction, Botox will inhibit the contraction and thereby create a more relaxed appearance. This will reduce visible facial wrinkling which, in turn, produces a more youthful look. It is an excellent first step in facial rejuvenation and its use can delay the need for facial cosmetic surgery, make you look better for that special occasion or make you approach that job interview with more confidence.
BOTOX is an injectable solution of the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces muscle activity. When injected between the brows, forehead, crows feet, and/or around the neckline, BOTOX relaxes the frown lines, and wrinkles disappear.
Although BOTOX is derived from the same bacteria which cause botulism, the concentration is far too low to be at all risky. A case of botulism would require an enormously greater exposure to the bacteria.
Most BOTOX treatments take about 10...
Clostridium botulinum bacterium, most popularly known as Botox, is a purified protein that is used to ease the look of wrinkles in the face. It is nonsurgical and physician administered aesthetic treatment to improve both shallow and deep frown lines on the forehead. People as young as 18 are eligible for treatment. Small doses of Botox are injected into the underlying muscles to minimize the appearance of wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses that provoke...
The Greatest Benefit of Botox is Prevention of Wrinkles
I love Botox as a way to prevent dynamic wrinkles before they start. It is normal for all us to use various expressions such as frowning, raising our eyebrows to emphasize a point. These are subconscious actions that eventually crease the skin from repeated movement. If you can temporarily block those muscles, you can actually prevent those forehead/frown lines and crows feet. Once those lines are there at rest, you have to do more aggressive procedures like peels or resurfacing lasers...
Botox works for expression-related lines, not just any line.
The benefits of Botox follow the function of Botox. It works by weakening the muscles near the injection area, to prevent the skin from being creased with expressions. The amount used will determine whether a line is "softened" or a face is "frozen". Skill and artistic attention to detail separate the average Botox provider from the ones who can properly modify a treatment for any given patient, even those with slight natural asymmetry or particular detail concerns....
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily weakens muscles and thereby minimizes the wrinkles/lines in the overlying skin of those muscles. The effects last from 3-4 months.Most commonly used to treat dynamic facial wrinkles, Botox can also be used to treat excessive underarm sweating and headaches.
Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for more information on the indications of Botox.
Botox works by paralyzing the underlying muscles which relaxes the overlying skin. It is most effective in the upper face, but can have nice results when used appropriately in other parts of the face and neck. Botox also blocks the mechanism of sweating, so it is often used to treat hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) in the axillae (armpits), hands, feet and inframammary (under the breast/chest) areas. Good luck.
The benefits of Botox in cosmetic medicine to decrease facial wrinkling are numerous:
1. Fast results
4. Easy to administer
5. Long experience of use
The only drawback to Botox from a cosmetic standpoint is that it is temporary. Botox is also used for many other therapeutic reasons including muscle spasticity, hyperhidrosis (increased sweating), headaches, bladder problems, etc. New uses for Botox are always being discussed....
Botox or Dysport in the right clinical hands can bring about rejuvenation
Botox or Dysport helps to relax facial muscles along upper 1/2 of the face that are otherwise under intense involuntary muscular contraction, giving rise to frown lines. Getting Botox or Dysport injected every 3-6 months by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon can help to 'decondition' these set of muscles, bringing about a more rejuvenated complexion and possibly slightly less frequent injection schedule if one were to keep up with regular Botox or Dysport...
Botox is extremely useful medicine that can help relax muscles and can help you erase wrinkles that are caused by these muscles. Botox is so popular because it can be done quickly in a doctors office and leaves no scarring or other long-term effects. Botox can give areas of the face of more youthful appearance with fewer lines and wrinkles. Keep in mind that Botox does not work on deep wrinkles that are caused by gravity such as the nasal labial folds or the marionette lines...
There are many benefits to botox. In terms of facial rejuvenation Botox is probably the most consistent, predictable and safe treatment available. There is no better treatment for lines that occur from muscle movement such as between the eyebrows, forehead, smile lines around the eyes, and other areas. What I like most about Botox is that not only is there immediate cosmetic benefit, patients continue to get benefit from not wrinkling or furrowing the treated area - so it is really a wrinkle...
The benefits of cosmetic Botox use are widespread and include the fact it is a well-established, minimal downtime, economical method of controlling facial muscle movement for the purpose of treating unwanted lines and creases. The product has now been used for decades with an excellent safety record. Having cosmetic Botox treatment is easily done over lunch with a relatively quick visible result that, if done well, is difficult to detect.
Oftentimes, there are side benefits to having...
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world
That statement alone should be enough to demonstrate the value of Botox. As a Facial Plastic Surgeon and Platinum Botox provider I really love this product.
It can significantly and rapidly improve someones appearance. It is quick, easy, safe and is a great medicine. It has so many uses both cosmetic and functional that it is certainly worth looking in to further.
Robert F. Gray, MD, FACS
The benefits of Botox are quick onset, high satisfaction rate, safety profile, no downtime, few side effects, if any, affordability and ease of administration. The "cons" of Botox are that it does not last.
Botox is being used in medicine for a variety of ailments... and the list is growing. Headaches, bladder problems, muscle spasticity, depression - each year brings a new disease for which Botox seems to help.
Aesthetically, Botox is still reigning champ for improvement of lines and wrinkles in the upper face due to muscle hyperactivity. Glabellar lines (between the brows), forehead wrinkles, bunny lines, and crow's feet are all improved with proper placement of Botox. You'll also get a...
Botox and Dysport, the newest FDA approved neurotoxin, reduce muscle movement and thereby soften existing wrinkles while preventing further wrinkles in that area.
These neurotoxins can help to slightly 'stretch the skin' to give a more youthful and tighter looking skin.
Botox and Dysport can also be used to help raise the brows to give a more open eye look and allow more of the upper eye lid to be visible.
Though not FDA approved for headaches, many patients feel they get relief from...
Botox has so many benefits we should ask what it can't do
Most people don't realize that only about half of all Botox is injected for purely cosmetic reasons. The therapeutic side if the business is huge, including treatment for things from spastic muscles in cerbral palsy to preventing migraine headaches. Because of the specific way that it relaxes muscles, it is very helpful for certain types of facial wrinkles. One of my favorite recent findings is that having Botox for facial wrinkles actually improves one's mood in objectively measurable ways....
Botox relaxes the muscles and usually takes 4-10 days to onset. It is most commonly injected into the glabellar area (area between the medial eyebrows), the crows feet and the forehead. It lasts approximately 4 months. It has a great safety record. It really does a great job and makes a wonderful difference.
Dysport recently has been approved in the usa (has been used in europe for years) and is virtually identical to Botox. It is good that there is finally some competition to allerghan who...
Botox is a treatment that is used to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It treats wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movements, for example the lines between the eyebrows that appear when we frown. When we are young and the skin is very elastic, the lines go away when we stop frowning. Over time, after we have made that facial expression thousands and thousands of times, the line doesn't quite go away anymore when we stop frowning.
BOTOX is a purified protein from a bacteria that stops the communication between nerves and muscles, thus resulting in less dynamic wrinkles such as on the forehead, in the frown area, and around the eyes. It can also be used to lift the corners of the mouth. Other non-cosmetic benefits include use in: migraines, Raynaud disease, hyperhidrosis, club foot, urinary incontinence, cerebral palsy, and the list goes on.
Botox is a substance which inhibits muscle activity. Dynamic rhytids are caused by muscles of facial expression. These wrinkles are prominent in the upper third of the face around the eyes and forehead. These wrinkles appear in the 30s and are one of the first signs of facial aging. Botox relaxes the muscles of facial expression thereby eliminating the cause of the wrinkle. Botox will give a smooth and youthful appearance of your face and is most often used around the eyes and forehead....
The primary benefit of Botox Cosmetic is the smoothing effect it has on the face as it relaxes the muscles that cause fine lines. While it is only FDA approved for the area between the eyes - the "11" lines - Botox can be used in other areas of the face as well. We use Botox for the following areas of the face:
To smooth the vertical lines that develop between the eyes.
To erase the horizontal lines above the eyes on the forehead.
To hide the horizontal "crow's feet"...
For cosmetic use, Botox relaxes specific muscles that, when contracted, cause facial wrinkling. When administered properly, Botox softens facial features without removing ability to animate. Using some topical numbing agent and ice before injecting makes it a comfortable procedure. The most common area injected is the frown area on the brow between the eyes to soften that angry look. The forehead can also be treated to smooth thansverse lines. Treating just next to the eye socket...
