Botox: South Shore & North Shore MA Rockland & Wakefield Massachusetts
Fine lines, frown lines, how-did-those-get-there lines. Whatever you call them, a few minutes of BOTOX® can smooth wrinkles on your forehead, in-between your eyes, and crow’s feet. This is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment that requires zero downtime, so you can come in and erase those signs of aging on your lunch break. Using a very fine needle we inject BOTOX® into the facial muscles responsible for those annoying wrinkles, totally relaxing them and reducing their ability to contract. Don’t worry, you’ll be out the door and on your way to feeling refreshed and radiating confidence in no time.
BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
What Can I Expect?
The small size of the needle results in very minimal discomfort for most people. What’s great is that Botox injections can be done in as little as 10 minutes, and results can be seen for months after. This is what makes this procedure popular, because it can be done so quickly, and results in almost zero down time, unlike some other treatments available. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
