"I have deep wrinkles in my forehead that make me look mad all the time. Can Botox smooth these out? How long does it take to see full Botox results?"
We answer this question and many more on a daily basis in our office. The answer is "Yes", Botox can smooth wrinkles on the face and even in the chest area. Botox Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines. Botox Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum and has been used to treat wrinkles in the United States since 2002.
Botox results can be seen in as little as 24-48 hours for less severe frown lines. Full results can be seen at 14 days post treatment. Most patients will see results for up to 4 months. Many patients return for treatments a few times a year to keep the frown lines from becoming noticeable. Be sure to use a Doctor who specializes in Botox and comes highly recommended to you. Doctors who know the facial anatomy will be able to give you the Botox results you are looking for.
