What is Botox?

Botox is a simple, non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles in people from 18 to 65 years of age. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, botulinum toxin type A administrations were the number one minimally invasive cosmetic procedure administered in the United States in 2014, with 6.7 million procedures occurring that year. Botox® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This treatment takes about 10 minutes and consists of a few small injections. Within days this procedure creates a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. The results of this short procedure can last for up to 4 months. Results may vary. At Sculpted Medical Spa, we use Botox to decrease the severity of facial lines, lines between the brows, forehead lines, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
