To ensure product authenticity and safety, The Illuminesse Clinic only uses BOTOX® Cosmetic purchased directly from Allergan.
At Illuminesse, we are trained in the advanced uses of BOTOX® for full facial area rejuvenation, neck and chest rejuvenation, and for excessive sweating.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a mainstay in the fashion, beauty and cosmetic industry. Made popular by Movie stars and Models, BOTOX® Cosmetic is now regularly performed on people of all professions.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is that it's a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. You can even do it on your lunch break.
Ideal candidates for treatment are persons who wish to see an improvement in their facial lines and wrinkles, but do not wish to commit to a facial surgery.
There's only one BOTOX® Cosmetic manufactured by the biological pharmaceutical company Allergan. BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by physicians and is available only by prescription.
Dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by facial expression and muscle movement), are especially prevalent in the area around the eyes, forehead, and the glabellar area between the eyebrows. Fortunately, these wrinkles are very responsive to BOTOX® treatments. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that it weakens the muscles responsible for squinting and crinkling of these areas. The treatment effectively reduces or eliminates crow’s feet, wrinkles around the eyes, and forehead lines. Since BOTOX® injections only affect muscle nerves, not nerves of sensation, patients do not experience a loss of feeling in the treated area.
BOTOX® injections can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in much the same way it smoothes fine lines and wrinkles on the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic acts as an inhibitor, blocking the chemical signals sent from the nerves that control sweating. Sweating stops because the sweat glands are unable to receive signals from the nerves. Because of its effectiveness in inhibiting the nerve signals, BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven to be effective at eliminating excessive sweating problems. Areas which are commonly treated are the under-arms, and the palms. It is well known in Hollywood circles that stars often receive BOTOX® injections a few days before high-profile events to control excessive under-arm sweating.
No anesthetic is required, although ice is recommended for it's numbing effect. Several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic are given directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and forehead. Treatment time is approximately 10 minutes.
Within days there should be a noticeable improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines and crows feet that can last up to 6 months.
Continued Regular treatment can permanently reduce lines and wrinkles. When used with Facial fillers, Facial Peels, Erbium Laser Resurfacing, and our cosmeceutical facial products, the long-term results are excellent.
