Botox® Cosmetic treatments work by relaxing the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. When the muscles relax for a period of time, the skin is able to “rest” and the lines and wrinkles disappear. Botox Cosmetic is a temporary solution that is preferred by patients who do not need, or want, more extensive procedures. This minimally invasive, temporary treatment is also an excellent option for first-time patients who are curious about the improvements that they can have with cosmetic procedures.
Please keep in mind that in order to demonstrate the after effect of Botox Cosmetic injections, the patients shown are attempting to “wrinkle” their foreheads or other areas where injections were given. Notice that wrinkles are not present.
