Millions of people already know BOTOX® Cosmetic — a nonsurgical treatment that helps temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Over 11 million cosmetic injections have been performed since 2002.
Derived from a natural occurring protein, and has been widely tested for over 20 years, Botox works by entering the nerve terminals, blocking the release of acetylcholine and resulting in temporary immobility at the muscle site. As some mobility begins to return (2-4 months) the ideal time for reinjection occurs. If there is not reinjection of the Botox, complete muscle activity returns.
Botox is FDA approved for glabellar creases at this time. There have been no allergic reactions to Botox documented. Pelle Spa uses Botox for:
- • Forehead lines (horizontal)
- • Brow lift
- • Crow’s feet
- • Bunny lines
- • Hyperhydrosis (sweating, often used under the arms).
