“Botox is really good to get in the Spring and Summer because most squinting occurs when out in the sun. When you squint you are firing the muscles at the lateral canthal (crow’s feet) and the glabellar canthal (in between the eyes) causing lines to form. Botox is the number one product on the market for wrinkle prevention and is FDA approved.”
-Christian, Director of Nursing at Concannon Plastic Surgery
What is Botox?
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).
It 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.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, introduced in 2002, is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows.
“I got Botox for the first time about 6 months ago. I did it to provide my patients with information about Botox based on my own experience with the product. Being able to explain to them how it feels and show them my own results is important to me. I also knew Botox works as a paralyzer, preventing me from future wrinkles-this is a definite plus! I really couldn’t be happier with my results!”
As with any cosmetic decision, always educate yourself on the risks and safety.
