BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most effective nonsurgical treatments to eliminate crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the facial muscles which contract, causing wrinkles to form.
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into your face, it bonds itself to the nerve endings in the treatment region. This prevents the release of neurotransmitters which typically cause muscle contractions in your face. As a result, these muscles become relaxed, and the wrinkles formed when they contract start to fade away.
You can expect the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic to last three to six months. In order to maintain your results for a longer time period, you will need to return to Dr. Kim’s Beverly Hills plastic surgery office for follow-up treatments. It is an effective option for people who would like to eliminate the appearance of mild to moderate facial wrinkles, but do not need an extensive face lift to achieve their goals.
