One of the quickest fixes for lines in between the brows (the dreaded “11’s”) is BOTOX®.
These simple injections can, in the span of 5 to 10 days, soften or even eliminate those lines, without any downtime, and with minimal discomfort. And yet I am often faced with a patient who will not even consider BOTOX®! Why is that? I have a feeling a little misinformation, or even lack of information, may be the reason.
Quite simply, BOTOX® a very refined and purified protein from the botulinum toxin.
And yes, botulinum toxin can cause deadly consequences, but NOT BOTOX® The most serious side effect from BOTOX® cosmetic injections could be a conditions called “ptosis”, which is a droop of the eyelid when the BOTOX® is injected improperly. This is a temporary condition that clears up by itself.
When a patient asks me what to do when the tired, angry face in the mirror does not match the vibrant, happy person inside, I WILL always recommend BOTOX® injections. They are a quick, relatively painless and very effective way to reveal the vibrant person you want the world to see!
