Facial Plastic Surgery Treatments
Things to know about Botox:
Botox®is an FDA-approved drug that is used to temporarily smooth facial lines. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles of the face. Botox® is best used to treat dynamic wrinkles, those lines caused by the movement of facial muscles. Static lines are best addressed with fillers or resurfacing procedures.
Common areas that can be treated with Botox®include the glabella (the area of the forehead between the eyebrows), the forehead, the brow area, and the crow's feet area. Treatment is generally done in an office setting and takes about 15 minutes. Results take effect in about 3 to 7 days and last up to 4 months.
