BOTOX Cosmetic

 
     
 
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment has become one of the more popular procedures for people who want to reduce the visible signs of aging. A session of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections takes about 10 minutes, and the results can last for up to four months.

What Does BOTOX Treat?

As you age, lines and furrows can develop between your brows. These “frown lines” can lend your face an angry, tired, or sad aspect, making you appear older than you feel. One of the chief causes of frown lines is overactive muscles in your brow. That’s where Botox Cosmetic can assist in refreshing and relaxing your appearance.

What Does BOTOX Do?

The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a naturally-occurring protein that relaxes tightened muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections relax the muscles that cause frown lines,

Not All BOTOX® Is Created Equal

 
  All Botox Is Not The Same We all hear so much about BOTOX®, officially known as BOTOX® Cosmetic. There are so many advertisements and specials out there that at times it can be dizzying. But as the headline says, not all BOTOX® is created equal. So as the consumer, you need to beware and ensure that you have the correct information regarding the application of BOTOX® .

Here is some information that we at Wake Health Medical Group believe you can use to help guide yourself through the media maze.
 
  Unfortunately, the BOTOX® you get at one practice may not be exactly what you get at another. Clostridium botulinum toxin type A is supplied in a manufacturers’ vial containing 100 units of the vacuum-dried neurotoxin complex. In order to be able to inject these active units of BOTOX®, a physician must add saline to get it in “liquid form.” This process enables the BOTOX® to be extracted from the vial into the syringe.

There are 100 units of BOTOX® in every vial. As you can see in Table A (see above), the more saline (in mL) added to the BOTOX® vial, the less active units present in each 1/10 mL extracted into the syringe. Some may refer to this is as the dilution process, but it is actually called “reconstitution.” So now, while each practice got the same product from the manufacturer, when they reconstitute it to make it possible to inject, they can add saline at the recommended standard or they can add more saline than recommended.

If you are seriously considering BOTOX we would love to share more information and answer your questions in person. Why not call us at (919) 554-6754 today to schedule a FREE consultation?
