Are you starting to pay more attention to the wrinkles across your forehead, the lines between your eyes, or your crow’s feet. When you start noticing lines on your face “at rest,” which means while having no facial expression, it’s the right time to start using a relaxing injectable like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin to prevent wrinkles etching into your skin. The use of these products has been proven to take years off the age of your face, and they are very safe when administered by an experienced medical practitioner. Dr. Michelle Parsons has extensive experience injecting Botox, as well as Xeomin and Dysport. Dr. Parsons has been awarded with Diamond Level Injector status by Allergan, the makers of Botox.
Allergan awards the prestigious BOTOX Diamond Level Provider status only to centers that have the most extensive experience and BOTOX cases, ensuring the best treatment for patients. If you are interested in receiving treatment with Botox, you should seek the most experienced and qualified physician injector in your area. Dr. Parsons has the experience to consistently give you the results you want.
Typical areas treated with Botox are: around the eyes (crow's feet), the frown area and forehead, bunny lines on the nose, the lips, chin and the area around the corners of the mouth to turn the mouth corners upward. Neck bands can also be treated. Botox is also utilized to manage migraine headaches and can control excessive underarm sweating.
HOW BOTOX® WORKS
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
MODERATE TO SEVERE FROWN LINES
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.
MODERATE TO SEVERE CROW’S FEET
When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.
MODERATE TO SEVERE FOREHEAD LINES
When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.
What to expect with treatment?
Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
A product backed by thorough research
Only BOTOX® Cosmetic is backed by more than 16 years of published studies. It uses a unique manufacturing process, and its potency is measured in units that cannot be compared to any other product. This is why there is no such thing as “generic” BOTOX® Cosmetic.
I had a Botox treatment to soften the lines around my lips and the results were noticeable immediately. People used to comment and tell me I wasn't smiling before, and now I don't hear these remarks. It has been a great experience!
