Reduce face and skin wrinkles

The treatment involves very tiny injections into the muscles under the skin in order to temporarily relax the muscles.

What is Botox®?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional 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.

What is the most important information I should know about BOTOX®?

BOTOX® may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems after treatment with BOTOX®:

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. These problems can happen hours to weeks after an injection of BOTOX® usually because the muscles that you use to breathe and swallow can become weak after the injection. Death can happen as a complication if you have severe problems with swallowing or breathing after treatment with BOTOX®.
  • People with certain breathing problems may need to use muscles in their neck to help them breathe. These patients may be at greater risk for serious breathing problems with BOTOX®.
  • Swallowing problems may last for several months. People who cannot swallow well may need a feeding tube to receive food and water. If swallowing problems are severe, food or liquids may go into your lungs. People who already have swallowing or breathing problems before receiving BOTOX®have the highest risk of getting these problems.
  • Spread of toxin effects. In some cases, the effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas of the body away from the injection site and cause symptoms of a serious condition called botulism.

The symptoms of botulism include:

  • loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body
  • double vision
  • blurred vision and drooping eyelids
  • hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia)
  • trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria)
  • loss of bladder control
  • trouble breathing
  • trouble swallowing

These symptoms can happen hours to weeks after you receive an injection of BOTOX® or BOTOX® Cosmetic.

These problems could make it unsafe for you to drive a car or do other dangerous activities.

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when BOTOX® has been used at the recommended dose to treat severe underarm sweating, blepharospasm, or strabismus, or when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.

Before and After Photos

“I am a 30 year old woman who has always been against Botox and needle based procedures for myself. I am not too concerned about wrinkles and fine lines yet, however I wanted to try to lift my eyebrows a bit. Finally after seeing the results of an eyebrow on one of my friends, I decided to give it a try. I loved it. My eyebrows look amazing and to my surprise I also am loving the reduction of my fine lines and wrinkles”.

“I have been seeing Dr. Maytham for several years now. Sometimes I get the lines around my lips injected – just to get rid of the ‘smokers lines’ (but I don’t smoke). I don’t want bigger lips, I just don’t like that look. Sometimes I also get him to do the “11’s” lines between my eyebrows – the ones that you see when you frown. I have never done too much at once, just enough to keep my face looking fresh. Recently I did lose a fair bit of weight and it was really noticeable in the areas under my eyes. So, Dr. Maytham put some filler in my cheek area. The results were not noticeable at all in terms of “Did she have something done to her”, however I looked so rested and calm it was amazing. I trust Dr. Maytham completely and recommend him to all of my friends without hesitation”.
