What is it?
Botox® has been used therapeutically for many years to treat a variety of medical conditions, specifically neurological disorders. In 2002,
Botox® was approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
How does it work?
Botox® blocks nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract, and as a result enables them to relax, and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. The effects of Botox® are very localized and, when administered by an experienced physician like Dr. Salomon, and do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
What is the treatment like?
Botox® is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections. Dr Salomon will determine exactly where to administer these injections to achieve the best results for you. There is no downtime afterward and discomfort is minimal and brief.
You can expect to see results within 1-3 days after your treatment, and continue to improve for up to 2 weeks after. Botox® visible results have been shown to last up to 6 months.
