Many of the lines that appear on your face are the result of muscle movement pulling beneath your skin. As your skin softens, this pulling shows in fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead and at the edges of the eyes.
Botox™ is a pharmaceutical that restricts the transmission of nerve impulses to muscle. A simple series of Botox™ injections can release muscle tension and greatly reduce wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. The first series of injections will affect the area for approximately three to six months. The second set of injections lasts progressively longer.
The injections are done in our office in less than an hour. Some patients may experience a headache afterward and there is a chance for some bruising to occur. Otherwise, most patients may return to work immediately after the injections.
The goal of performing Botox™ injections is to lessen and remove wrinkles around the eyes. The effect of this is more youthful, rested looking skin that doesn’t detract from the beauty of your eyes.
