Dr. Fortune is an authorized healthcare professional who can administer BOTOX. This non-sergical aesthetic treatment acts to temporarily smooth frown lines between the brows in people 18-65 years of age. FDA approved, this 10 minute treatment lasts up to 4 months.
BOTOX is comprised of Clostridium botulinum bacterium a purified protein which acts to reduce the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows. BOTOX works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; which lowers the activity of the brow muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
Clinical trials have shown improvement to 90% of subjects within a few days of treatment which continue to improve over the 30 days and can last up to 4 months.
Side Effects: Consult Dr. Fortune before you decided to have BOTOX treatment to ensure your health history is reviewed. Patients should not use BOTOX who have neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome. General side effects from BOTOX can be temporarily eyelid droop, nausea, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, bleeding/bruising, localized pain, infection.
BOTOX will not dramatically change your facial appearance, although a more youthful look is a visible result. Frown lines between the brow is simply diminished and will still be able to express a naturally surprised look or frown. You can maintain a smoother brow with treatments 3x per year but if you do not continue BOTOX your frown lines will return and eventually look as they did before treatment.
Contact Dr. Fortune if you are considering BOTOX treatment.
