Magda's Offers You Alternatives to Surgery
Today, there are more ways to combat the signs of aging than ever before. Aside from facelifts and other surgical procedures, many people are turning to safer, non-surgical skin tightening options like Botox®, Restylane™, Radiesse™, and Perlane™. With each of these treatments, a different method is used to achieve the same basic goals-- wrinkle removal, skin tightening, and rejuvenation. No one has yet devised a way to permanently tighten the skin or prevent any and all wrinkles from appearing, but new technology is certainly improving enough to effectively combat aging.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18–65. BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by physicians and is available only by prescription.
