Recent research has proven that BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts up to 4 months. Experience these remarkable results for yourself at Vinings Surgery Center. For frown lines and crow’s feet, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic injection relaxes the muscles so they don’t contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Treatment takes just about 5 minutes and no anesthesia is needed. Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some cases the toxin can migrate and cause temporary weakness of nearby muscles. In rare cases there can be a temporary drooping of an eyelid or facial asymmetry.
The risk of any side effect depends on the muscles injected. Because the effects of the BOTOX® procedure are completely reversible, all side effects are only temporary. Recovery is immediate, with minimal restrictions for four hours.
