Have you been searching for a BOTOX® doctor in the Lexington, Kentucky area, or have you thought about trying BOTOX® Cosmetic or Juvéderm® but didn’t know which one would be right for you? At AbellEyes, we would be happy to answer all of your questions on these popular cosmetic procedures!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, almost-painless treatment for moderate to severe frown lines and dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time, frequently seen between the eyebrows or at the corners of the eyes.
With just one 10-minute appointment—a few tiny injections—you will see a noticeable improvement in the areas that have been treated. Each treatment can last up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not as effective on static wrinkles, but AbellEyes is pleased to offer another solution for those wrinkles that form around the naso-labial folds, sometimes referred to as “parentheses” wrinkles. These are better treated with dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®.
Important Safety Information
BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:
- Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.
- Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia), trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria), loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
