Have you been considering BOTOX?  Have you already been treated with BOTOX and want to consider a regular treatment plan?  Either way, the Aesthetic & Weight Loss Center at Affinity has all the answers to any questions you might have regarding treatment, procedures, cost and results.
 
BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medication injected into the muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows - called glabellar lines.  This treatment is for anyone between the ages of 18 and 65 and is meant to be a temporary procedure but can be administered as a regular treatment to maintain results.  To date, over 11 million men and women have experienced BOTOX with overwhelmingly positive results and very little discomfort or side effects.
 
Here are some common questions and answers about BOTOX Cosmetic - we encourage you to call us today for a consultation.  The Aesthetic & Weight Loss Center at Affinity can help you determine if BOTOX is right for you and get you own your way to real, noticeable results.  The best part is that there is no surgery and no recovery time.
 
  • How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?
    • BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medicine injected into the muscles and used to improve the look of the "11s" - the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows.  It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles that reduces the muscle activity that causes lines to form.
  • When will I see results from a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment?
    • Within days you may see a marked improvement in the frown lines between your brows.  Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months (individual results may vary).
  • Is treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic painful?
    • Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.  Prior to injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.  The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and most patients are in and out of the physician's office without any downtime.
