Botox Cosmetic treatments are easily administered during a routine office visit. The treatment procedure itself takes only 10 minutes. A simple injection, directly into localized regions of the facial muscles, weakens and reduces their pull on the skin, eliminating the ability to form deep expression lines on problem areas of the face.
Although not a permanent cure, with adequate dosages the effects of Botox Cosmetic can last from 3 to 6 months or even longer, making it today’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. The treated areas not only have a more youthful and rested appearance, but patients have actually remarked about how much more relaxed they feel after their Botox treatments.
I can personally vouch for that (I get Botox between my own eyebrows). I definitely feel less tense and more relaxed from my treatments, especially when I am in the sun, which normally causes facial muscular contraction. It works much the way sunglasses relieve squinting.
