Is BOTOX Cosmetic Right For You ?

You know those frown lines between your eyebrows that are making you feel old when you look in the mirror? Or the wrinkles around your mouth or horizontal neck lines? There IS something you can do about it. It’s BOTOX Cosmetic, one of the many formulations of botulinum toxin.

When BOTOX is injected into the face, the botulinum blocks the release of muscle-contracting chemicals and enables muscle relaxation. As a result, you get smoother looking skin.

Are there any side effects to BOTOX? After you get the injections, you’ll probably notice some swelling or bruising near the injection site. It also usually takes 3-5 days for the injection to take effect and can last from 3-6 months.

Botox has other uses, as well. It can be used to treat muscle spasms, underarm sweating and migraines, too.

Botox in Mississippi is popular, and we’re sure you’ve probably heard of Botox parties, where people other than Board Certified plastic surgeons or dermatologists do the injections. Talk about safety concerns! You should only use a skilled, certified expert for BOTOX injections. After all, it’s your FACE we’re talking about.

The best way to know if BOTOX is right for you is to talk to a Board Certified Mississippi plastic surgeon like Dr. David Steckler. He’ll provide you with all the information you need to know regarding the procedure, risks, safety and effectiveness of BOTOX Cosmetic. Whether you are dealing with fine lines, deep folds, wrinkles or crow’s feet, he can help you achieve results that create a more positively beautiful you.
