Botox® is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the persistent lines of the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes that develop over time. Botox® is injected into the muscles causing the unwanted lines to soften as it relaxes these muscles. The effect of the Botox® lasts for up to four months. It has been widely tested and is now approved by the FDA.
Deciding if Botox® is Right for You
If you want to soften the lines of your forehead, brow, or around your eyes through a minimally invasive procedure, Botox® may be for you. Dr. Hein will review your goals and medical history as part of your initial consultation.
What to expect from Botox®
The procedure consists of several tiny injections in the desired area. No anesthesia is required. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and it is unlikely that you will develop significant side effects. Some people develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site that can easily be covered by makeup. You may resume normal activities immediately.
Within a few days you will see a marked improvement which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to four months.
