BOTOX® Cosmetic for Beauty
With BOTOX® Cosmetic, looking young and radiant is now as convenient as grabbing a quick meal. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an innovation in cosmetic treatments for women who want significant reduction of facial lines and wrinkles without spending significant time and money on more complex procedures like chemical peels or fillers. Treatment takes about 15 minutes; results can be seen within a few days and last between 3 to 6 months.
Many wrinkles and laugh lines occur because our facial muscles contract causing the skin to furrow. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from a natural protein called botulinum toxin Type A, which keeps muscles from contracting for a period of time. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are a series of little, painless, injections made directly into the facial muscles. The muscles stay relaxed so the skin remains smooth creating a naturally young appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia or pain medication. Because treatment is simple and direct, it is also quick, and can be administered easily right in the doctor's office. Fitting a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment into a busy schedule is as painless as the procedure.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is more than a cosmetic treatment.
As the attributes of BOTOX® Cosmetic continue to be discovered and tested, new treatments are being approved. Botox® has recently been approved for treatment of excessive sweating. If you suffer from excessive sweating, or Hyperhidrosis, you may be interested in this new treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic for Excessive Sweating
Don't sweat it BOTOX® Cosmetic is here. Using a simple and virtually painless technique, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the skin of your armpit. Within two days you should see the difference and the effect lasts for 4 to 6 months, sometimes as long as one year.
Excessive sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis, is a medical condition. It is not a disease itself but rather a symptom of other medical conditions such as a disorder of the nerves. Hyperhidrosis affects up to 3% of the population. We do not know why some people develop the condition and others don't.
The effect of it on our lives can vary from embarrassing to truly devastating. All too often, living with hyperhidrosis becomes a silent struggle: avoiding social contacts, trying to disguise the excessive sweating with clothing, powders, and pads. Our social, professional, and even most intimate relationships may be seriously affected.
Even though hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that can have profound and devastating effects on our physical and mental well-being, most insurance companies will not reimburse plan members for the treatment.
