Botox is a treatment used to temporarily improve both moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults, and requires minimal downtime and/or recovery. Most patients go right back to work.
Botox targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet, which is the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and/or squinting over the years. Botox temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines. Proven to last up to 4 months.
Does it hurt?
Some patients report that being injected feels like a tolerable pinch. If you are concerned about discomfort, you may be provided a topical anesthetic before treatment is administered.
After treatment, avoid:
– Laying down for 4 hours
– Massaging the injection area(s)
