BOTOX® CosmeticBOTOX® Cosmetic is the trade name of Botulinum Type A, a powerful muscle toxin protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected in tiny amounts directly into a specific muscle, the specific action of that muscle is relaxed. This procedure is very effective at softening the lines that come from facial movements like frowning and squinting, tightening the facial skin.
What can I expect from Botox?
Frown lines and crow’s feet are formed from years of repeated muscle contractions used for frowning or squinting. BOTOX® Cosmetic targets the underlying causes of these lines temporarily leaving skin that looks younger and smoother. Don’t worry about looking too “overdone,” BOTOX is a technique sensitive treatment.
What is a treatment like?
A treatment of BOTOX takes only 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime. Some call it “the lunchtime procedure.” During the procedure Dr. Melley will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes or
around the brows!
Does the treatment hurt?
While most patients find only slight discomfort in the procedure, if you are concerned, Dr. Melley can apply ice or a topical anesthetic to numb the area before treatment.
