Botox Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines in people from 18-65 years of age.

Botox® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Botox® is ranked as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row. Advanced Laser and Skin Clinic offers Botox injections in Tacoma, WA.

What is it?

Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscle that causes those frown lines between the brows.

How does Botox® Cosmetic Work?

During treatment, very low doses of Botox® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, Botox® Cosmetic enables them to relax. The effects are localized, and when administered by an experienced physician do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.

What causes frown lines?

The lines that appear with facial expressions, as between the brows, actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in stubborn lines. 

Because the lines are dynamic lines caused by over active muscles, they can usually be treated with tiny injections of Botox® Cosmetic.

The total treatment time for Botox® cosmetic is approximately 10 minutes. There is no down time and within days there is a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines. Results can last up to 4 months and have been seen to last longer in some clients. Results may vary.
Although you may see a marked improvement, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic does not make you look like you've "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines and wrinkles is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
