Botox Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines, crows feet and more. Dr. Cornell has received training in the use and application of Botox Cosmetic to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles giving you a more refreshed appearance.
Botox Cosmetic is an injectable purified protein derivative. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form and is administered in extremely diluted dosages.
Treatment takes only a few minutes and involves a few tiny injections. A very small needle is used to inject the Botox into the muscle with minimal discomfort. Improvement can be seen within 7-14 days and can typically last 3-4 months or longer.
Botox has been safely used for ophthalmic disorders for over 10 years. When Botox was used to treat ophthalmic patients, one physician noticed that the lines around her patients eyes improved. In April 2001, Botox Cosmetic was cleared for use in Canada for patients with facial wrinkles. Since then many satisfied people have been safely treated.
