What is Botox®?

Botox® is the first and only FDA approved product that improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead lines, and moderate to severe crow's feet (laughter lines around the eyes).
 
Botox® is injected into the muscle for temporary relaxation of these fine lines and wrinkles and results in skin that appears smoother.
Lines and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It is not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals.
 
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow's feet.
 
Botox® works beneath the skin's surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow's feet to form over time.

Is Botox® safe and what should I expect?

The procedure is safe, and discomfort is minimal to none. Botox® is given with the tiniest of needles. You can begin to see noticeable results within a few days, and it can take up to two weeks for the full effect.
 
Results can last up to 3-4 months. Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment for both men and women for restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery. At Mediluxe, rather than augmenting or altering your appearance, we believe in enhancing your natural beauty.
