The muscles around the eyes can create wrinkles and cause the brows to droop. By relaxing these muscles, Botox® can help replace a furrowed brow with a refreshed look. Botox® not only effectively reduces wrinkles, it can provide many of the benefits of a surgical brow lift without the recovery time. It is used to soften dynamic wrinkles--the wrinkles produced by facial movement. Static wrinkles, from smoking or sun exposure, are best treated with fillers, lasers or surgery.
Generally treatments can be administered in an office setting. Anesthesia is rarely needed, but an ice pack may be used.
You will see the results within three to five days. While results vary, benefits last about three to four months.
Botox® is often combined with a wrinkle filler for the best result.
