Over time, skin becomes less elastic; repeated frowning creates lines and wrinkles between the brows (also known as glabellar lines).
Botox® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved prescription treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked
Botox® Cosmetic as the most popular physician-administered cosmetic procedure in the United States for the 4th year in a row; almost 3.3 million
Botox® Cosmetic procedures were performed in 2005 alone.
How Botox® Cosmetic Works
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that smoothes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses. With a few tiny injections, Botox® Cosmetic blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out and the lines begin to fade.
The Botox® Cosmetic procedure consists of a few tiny injections and takes only 10 minutes. No anesthesia is required; however Dr.
Ajmani may numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. There may be minimal and brief discomfort, along with slight temporary bruising at the injection sight which can easily be covered up with make-up. There is no down-time.
Results are typically seen in days and may continue to improve during the first week after treatment. Results may vary. With proper unit dosing, the effects of Botox® Cosmetic can last up to four months. 89% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their appearance of brow frown lines as moderate to better after one month.
What You Show Know Before A Botox® Procedure
To ensure the best treatment outcome, Dr. Ajmani should inject 20 units in the glabellar region between the brows, ensure you receive the proper dosage for best results! Dosage amount is not based on the number of syringes used,
so ask Dr. Ajmani exactly how many units you are receiving.
About Dysport® Injections
Dysport® is an FDA approved and highly refined injectable protein that uses the same botulinum toxin used in Botox®. A single injection is made into 5 points between the eyebrows.
The entire process takes between 10-20 minutes with estimated results lasting anywhere from 3-6 months.
