BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment by injection of a small amount of botulinum toxin into the muscles underneath wrinkles or frown lines. This procedure weakens and relaxes the muscle so that hyperdynamic or functional lines and wrinkles gradually resolve. The procedure takes effect after about three to seven days. The improvement then lasts for about three to six months. Eventually after multiple Botox treatments, longer-lasting results will remain, requiring fewer treatments to maintain results. The net effect is a more youthful, rested and relaxed appearance. It is possible to accomplish a brow lift with the use of Botox. Also, glabella and forehead lines and crow’s feet respond very well to Botox injections, as do lines around the mouth and drooping mouth corners. The procedure takes only a few minutes and requires little to no downtime. Dr. Christine Brown is a board-certified dermatologist trained to administer Botox in her practice in Dallas, TX.
