Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment for frown lines (the deep lines that appear between the eyebrows when frowning or squinting) and crow’s feet (the fine lines at the outer corners of the eyes).
Frown lines and crow’s feet are associated with squinting and frowning. By temporarily disabling the muscle that allows these facial movements, Botox creates a beautiful, smooth appearance on the forehead and around the eyes. Because frown lines can create an angry or adverse effect, Botox not only results in a more youthful appearance but often a happier, more pleasant appearance, too.
When Botox is administered by a trained and experienced professional, the results are not only beautiful but very natural in appearance. Patients shouldn't lose the ability for facial expression as a result of this treatment.
The best way patients can ensure natural results that meet or exceed their expectations is to choose a provider who is trained, experienced, and able to provide before and after photos of patients they’ve treated.
Patients begin noticing results soon after treatment with their peak results occurring about ten days after the injections.
Individual results vary, but Botox can last as long as four months before additional treatment is required.
There's no recovery time for Botox. While patients can return to work immediately following treatment, some temporary redness and swelling generally occurs and lasts for an hour or two following treatment. For this reason, some patients choose to schedule their treatment at the end of the day or take the remainder the day off of work if applicable. If you’re interested in Botox, call or schedule an appointment online with the experienced team of doctors at Austin Primary Care Physicians.
