BOTOX Facts: What to know before you get treated
Over the years BOTOX has received a bad reputation by being blamed by the media for the overdone/fake appearance of many celebrities or "frozen face." But the truth is BOTOX looks natural and beautiful when administered by a professional in appropriate amounts. At Wellness Fusion we take pride in helping our clients achieve the look they desire without the appearance of "having work done."
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX® COSMETIC IS AN INJECTION
Your specialist injects it into your muscles around the sides of your eyes (crow’s feet) and between your brows (frown lines).
BOTOX® COSMETIC TEMPORARILY REDUCES MUSCLE ACTIVITY
BOTOX® Cosmetic helps smooth moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines by targeting one of the underlying causes—the muscle contractions responsible for frowning and squinting.
WHAT IT’S MADE FROM
BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from sources that exist in nature. It contains tiny amounts of a highly purified protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
TREATMENT SIDE EFFECTS
In clinical studies, 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies.
Although rare some possible side effects include:
Discomfort or pain at the injection site
