As we age…our skin stretches and loses elasticity. Muscles contract during facial expressions such as smiling and frowning, highlighting fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® is a natural chemical which smoothes the upper part of the face by reducing the contractions of wrinkle-causing muscles. The most common problem muscles are those on your forehead and between your eyebrows.
Botox® is demonstrably safe and has been widely used for twenty-five years. The procedure is fast and can be performed during a short office visit with no recovery time necessary. It starts to work in about 5 days and the greatest effect is seen after approximately 2 weeks.
While safe, the injection of Botox® should be performed by a doctor who is highly experienced and trained in its use. Trained by the most prestigious experts in the field, Dr. Celia Brown devotes a large portion of her practice to this area. When Botox® is administered properly it raises and arches the eyebrows while smoothing out the crease between them. It softens the lines on the forehead and can virtually erase crow’s feet. Botox® can do all this while still leaving your facial expressions quite natural. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases. Dr. Celia Brown injects Botox® with the minimum amount of bruising and discomfort. She feels that the application of Botox® is an art that should be practiced slowly and carefully. At Skin Renaissance we know that your facial muscles are unique. Dr. Brown takes the time and care to make sure that your Botox® treatment is as unique as you are.
