BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. BOTOX® is temporary, but it’s also very effective and for some people it is a great alternative to surgical procedures for anti-aging results.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors – when you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by certified plastic surgeon Dr. Derron Spikes as a simple, nonsurgical treatment – it works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
At your consultation, be prepared to discuss why you want the procedure and what your expectations and desired outcomes are. Dr. Spikes works with patients on deciding if BOTOX® is right for them taking many factors into consideration – medical conditions, drug allergies, and previous injuries and/or procedures, for example.
