Cosmetic Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is the top cosmetic injectable of its kind. It contains onabotulinum toxin A, a purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes muscles.

Botox treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the eyes and forehead by relaxing the muscles responsible for creating these common wrinkles. The injections can minimize wrinkles for up to four months.

While some people think you need to wait until you’re a certain age to get cosmetic injections, Botox can benefit men and women of all ages. People in their 20s and 30s may use Botox as a preventive measure, while older people can improve the look of even deep-set wrinkles. 

What cosmetic concerns can Botox fix?

Botox is FDA-approved to improve the look of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet

Frown lines are the lines that appear between your eyebrows, and forehead lines are horizontal lines that develop on your mid to upper forehead. Crow’s feet are fine lines at the edges of your eyes.

All of these lines and wrinkles form over the years from repeated facial expressions. Skin creases when muscles below the surface contract as you smile, squint, or raise your eyebrows. Botox relaxes the muscles so that wrinkles fade from view.

Is Botox right for me?

Botox is generally a good treatment option for men and women who are bothered by moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Dr. Renk offers comprehensive evaluations and talks with you about your aesthetic goals to help you decide if Botox is right for you.

How do Botox treatments work?

Cosmetic treatments with Botox take just 10 minutes in the office. Dr. Renk prepares your skin and makes a series of small injections around your forehead or eyes, depending on your treatment area.

Most patients find that the injections feel like a small pinch. There’s only minimal downtime with Botox, so you can return to your normal daily activities shortly after leaving the office.

How long does Botox last?

You can expect results to begin developing within 24 to 48 hours following Botox treatment. Dr. Renk carefully administers Botox injections so your skin looks naturally beautiful. You can be confident that you’ll look like you after Botox, only with fewer lines and wrinkles.

Don’t let forehead lines or eye wrinkles hurt your self-esteem. Dr. Renk can give you a more youthful look and enhanced confidence with the help of Botox. Call the office for an appointment today.
