BOTOX Injections in Westport, CT
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
Dr. Brownell Discusses BOTOX and Dysport
How Is the BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure Performed?
The Botox treatment consists of tiny injections to the problem area. These injections temporarily alleviate excessive muscle activity responsible for your unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, relaxing them so they are temporarily less active. This procedure is minimally invasive and there is no down time, allowing you to resume your daily life with no interruptions.
The actual treatment takes less than 30 minutes and is shown to last 3-6 months on average. Individual results may vary. You can expect to see results within a few days and continue to notice improvement for up to two weeks.
Is BOTOX safe?
Botox Cosmetic is a purified botulinum type A protein used to relax dynamic wrinkles caused by the frequent movement and overuse of active muscles in the face, resulting in a more relaxed, rested, stress-free and youthful look. Botox Cosmetic was approved by the FDA in 2002 for those unsightly frown lines in between your brows, but has been used to treat various medical conditions for almost twenty years.
What can BOTOX be used for?
Botox Cosmetic can be used to smooth and reduce the wrinkles and fine lines that often make us look older than we feel. Dr. Shaked Brownell uses BOTOX to:
- Eliminate the “frown” or “angry” lines in between the eyebrows
- Reduce and eliminate wrinkles and “crow’s feet” around the eyes
- Eliminate the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
- Soften the fine lines around the mouth
- Reduce neck wrinkles
- Soften the effects of a “gummy” smile
The 1 Hour Face Lift: Dr. Shaked Brownell often uses dermal fillers in conjunction with Botox for a complete, non-surgical, no down time, facelift. This combination of products both relaxes the muscles and decreases the appearance of wrinkles, creating a more youthful, smoother, and healthier appearance. This non-invasive combination procedure has results that can last up to one year.
