BOTOX® Cosmetic May Be the One for You
BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the one for you. You may feel that the moderate to severe glabellar lines between your brows make you look tired or unapproachable, or have other reasons for being curious about BOTOX® Cosmetic. Ask Dr. Luther about BOTOX® Cosmetic to find out if it is right for you.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Luther as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
Secondly, Botox® is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox®.
Why Does Skin Age?
As an example, the “11s” – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows.
BOTOX® Cosmetic for Men
BOTOX® Cosmetic is certainly not just for women. If you are a man and think it’s time to do something about those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows and on your forehead, or those crows feet around your eyes when you smile, talk to Dr. Lutherabout whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.

This change occurs over two or three sessions of Botox®, as the masseter muscle shrinks. Patients have also reported a marked reduction in their general stress level as their grinding disappears. As they break the habit of bruxism, they regain control of their lives. Botox® treatment of teeth grinding is painless and quick (5 minutes). Results from Botox® treatment of bruxism start a few days to 2 weeks after injection and last for about 4 months.
