BOTOX® & Dysport®
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments erase lines, furrows and wrinkles on your face, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. When women and men from Panama City Florida, and other communities in Florida seek skin and laser experts experienced with BOTOX treatments, many come to us at the Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center. Using a very tiny needle, low doses of BOTOX® are injected precisely into the small muscles of the face that cause frown lines, crows feet, forehead furrows and other wrinkles that are created by making facial expressions. The key to successful BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is precise injection into the muscles requiring treatment, which depends on the skill of the injector.
To see for yourself the dramatic results that have made BOTOX injections so popular, please call Today to schedule a wrinkle reduction consultation at the Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center.
What Can BOTOX® Treatments Do for Me?
Lines that create an aged appearance accumulate over a lifetime. When you smile, laugh, or frown, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles, around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested aesthetic procedures. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet, frown lines, horizontal lines across the forehead, lines around the mouth, and neck lines.
BOTOX® treatment also prevents deeper facial lines that occur during natural facial movements.
BOTOX® may also be useful in treating medical conditions such as: BOTOX for migraine headaches, muscle spasms and BOTOX for sweating (hyperhidrosis).
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® is the brand name for botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent originally approved by the FDA for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms. Physicians have now been using BOTOX® Cosmetic for over a decade as a treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging.
The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. When injected in small doses in specific areas, BOTOX® injections block nerve muscles responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX® smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.
Facial expressions are produced by contraction of small muscle fibers in the face. As we age, and repetitively express ourselves, these lines become etched into our face causing stubborn wrinkles and deep furrows to form. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into these tiny muscles where it works to relax them thereby smoothing out the overlying wrinkles and fine lines. Only the muscles that are treated are affected which is important to maintain a natural look.
