Botox Injections & Treatments
BOTOX® has been used therapeutically for about 20 years to treat a variety of medical conditions including strabismus and blepharospasm. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. In 2002 it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65.
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement throughout the years. Skin folds and furrows form when the powerful muscles between the brows contract. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in permanent lines.
During treatment, minimal doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the mimic muscles. BOTOX® enables the muscles to relax by blocking the release of a chemical that normally causes them to contract,. The effects are very localized and, when administered by Dr Mardirossian, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. Discomfort is minimal and brief. Localized pain, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/swelling are rare.
You can expect to see results within days after your BOTOX treatment, and the appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to 7-10 days. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your doctor about what you can expect.
