Of the various BTX-A (botulinum toxin type A) cosmetic treatments on the market today, Botox® (manufactured by respected industry leader Allergen Inc.) remains the international “gold standard.”
Also known as Botox Cosmetic®, it has been used safely by millions of individuals around the world for almost twenty years. Approved for cosmetic use by the United States Food and Drug Administration, Botox® harmlessly paralyzes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles by repetative facial expressions.
Botox® effectively reduces horizontal lines across the forehead and the so-called “11” frown lines between the eyebrows. This smoothing effect can last for several months creating a younger, more relaxed appearance. It also aids in preventing new wrinkles from forming. With absolutely no recovery time, Botox® is a quick, painless, affordable alternative to traditional facelifts and other invasive, more expensive anti-aging procedures. Your appearance will improve immediately, with results becoming increasingly visible over a two to three day period.
