BOTOX® - Nose

BOTOX® has demonstrated great results in removing facial wrinkles. Wrinkles are caused by natural movements of the facial muscles. Common areas for wrinkle formation are the mimic muscles of the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow's feet). To remove these indicators of aging, BOTOX® can be injected.

BOTOX® treatments work by using a purified protein below the surface of the skin to block the transmission of nerve impulses to the treated muscles. As the muscle relaxes, the dynamic wrinkle overlying the muscle is smoothed away. Relaxation of these muscles by the simple injection of BOTOX® will help to lessen or completely remove frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar), crow's-feet lines at the outside corners of the eyes, and forehead wrinkles. When it is administered by a qualified physician using the proper technique, your face will still look natural and relaxed.

BOTOX® treatments are often used at the same time as dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures to achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated look. For example, BOTOX® treatments may be used on wrinkles at the outside corners of the eyes, while a dermal filler may be better used to restore lost volume in the cheeks or lips and to treat smile lines. 

The BOTOX® treatment is quite painless and quick and no special preparations are necessary. The treatment involves the injection of the BOTOX® toxin through a very fine needle into the particular muscles. The patient can return to work and regular activities a few hours after the treatment. The result, however, is not permanent and the patient can return for more treatments if the results are desirable.

BOTOX® is a prescribed medication and needs to be administered through a qualified and knowledgeable professional. The physician treating you is an important aspect of your care as it’s their expertise that will help ensure you get the results you are looking for.
