Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic in Pittsburgh

Botulinum toxin, also known as Botulinum Toxin, is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the facial area.

About Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic is comprised of a substance called onabotulinumtoxinA, which was first approved by the FDA in 2002 for the treatment of glabellar lines – the vertical frown lines between the brows. Since its approval, Botulinum Toxin has risen steadily to become the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the U.S. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

About Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum Toxin works by blocking the nerve impulses and reducing muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form. Rather than flexing and forming wrinkles, the muscles and skin stay relaxed. Botulinum Toxin is typically used to treat lines on the forehead and between the brows, which are the most common areas that benefit from the injections.

How Long Until I See Results?

The appearance of wrinkles will begin to improve within 24 hours of treatment, and the results will gradually improve over the next five days. Most patients will achieve their desired results after one injection, although it may be necessary to have additional injections in the future to maintain the desired results. Typically, Botulinum Toxin injection results can last usually three to four months, occasionally longer.

How Much Does Botulinum Toxin cost?
