Botox is a time tested FDA cleared product for treatment of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows and forehead. It is used to temporarily soften or freeze the action of the muscles that cause squinting, and thus cause lines and wrinkles.
A Botox treatment typically lasts 3 months, and should only be administered by a licensed registered nurse only.
Botox can also be used in the masseter muscles to reduce a thick jawline; in the underarms or hands to treat excessive sweating, in the neck to tighten a loose neck and so much more! Botox, Dypsort and Xeomin are all similar products, but are made by different manufacturers.
Botox is injected into a muscle, close to a nerve, to modulate and soften the muscle action. By doing this, fine lines and wrinkles are softened, or often disappear completely.
A Botox treatment is measured in “units”. Each unit of Botox costs $14. Typically the eyebrow area requires 20 units, around the eyes 22 units, and forehead about 10-20 units.
