A common affordable cosmetic procedure that these actresses and actors may have had is Botox® Cosmetic treatments. Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines. There are many myths surrounding Botox® treatments. Often times, people believe that they will have a fake frozen look that makes them look unnatural. Others believe these treatments could be dangerous and costly. However, if these treatments are done by an experience licenesed provider, the outcome can be a very natural look. Who says that you can't age gracefully.

Below are a few common myths surrounding Botox®.
My facial expressions will not be natural.
Although you will see marked improvement in your frown lines within 1-2 weeks, Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised.
Botox®treatment only lasts a few weeks.
Results from treatment with Botox® Cosmetic can last for up to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines treated gradually will look like they did before treatment.
Botox®treatment is painful and has a lot of side effects.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, we will numb the area with an anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people are in and out of the office without downtime following treatment. The most common side effect of treatment is bruising and minimal swelling.
We hope to see you soon.
Until next time always remember your sunscreen.
