BOTOX Boston* | Frown Lines, Crows Feet  



Stop frowning... start smiling!


                    BOTOX® Treatments for Men & Women

If your facial expression lines are making you look older than you are or are giving you the appearance of a frown or scowl, then you are an excellent candidate for a BOTOX® wrinkle treatment.

People often dislike their central scowl lines (called glabellar lines), which are caused by forehead muscles contracting when concentrating, squinting, or frowning.  As we laugh, cry, frown or smile, we contract the delicate underlying muscles in our face, and sooner or later, we pay the price - frown lines, worry lines, crow's eyes... 

Injections of the purified protein Botulinum toxin A are utilized to temporarily block nerve impulses and weaken the muscles that cause those so-called "dynamic" lines.

Your unwanted lines fade away within days of treatment, creating a younger and more relaxed appearance. There is no recovery or downtime.

BOTOX® is injected in tiny amounts into the muscles that create the lines. No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

After the injection, the nerve impulses are blocked and the muscle weakens. This weakness lasts for between three and six months at which time injections can be repeated. You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, and the appearance of the area treated may continue to improve for up to a week.

Other uses of Botox:

  • Hyperhidrosis.  Botulinum toxin can also be used to reduce sweating in the underarms, hands and feet by blocking the sympathetic nerve fibres that control sweat glands.

  • Migraine Headaches. In addition, Botulinum toxin can successfully alleviate migraine headaches in some patients.
