What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved nonsurgical facial rejuvenation solution. As a purified strain of Clostridium botulinum bacterium, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily interrupting the signals between your facial nerves and muscles. This allows your muscles to relax and skin to become smooth and wrinkle-free.
What BOTOX® Can Treat
Greensboro ophthalmologist Dr. Khemsara can use BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce or eliminate the appearance of:
- Smile and frown lines
- Wrinkles around the lips
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases and wrinkles
A single Greensboro BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can provide a smooth, youthful appearance for upwards of four months at which point, should you so desire, a repeat treatment can be performed.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Safety Information
Over 11 million men and women have received BOTOX® Cosmetic injections since its approval by the FDA. In its decade of use in the Unites States, less than one percent of recipients have reported serious side-effects. BOTOX® Cosmetic may result in temporary mild-discomfort as well as headaches or flu-like symptoms. While there is no guarantee against side-effects, you can reduce your risks by having your treatment performed by an experienced eye surgeon like Dr. Khemsara.
