When you look in the mirror, do you have frown lines across your forehead or deep creases between your brows? Are the edges of your mouth beginning to turn down?
Dr. William Frazier can help you feel better about your appearance with use of BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® is also used to mitigate excessive sweating, uncontrolled blinking or muscle spasms, and migraine headaches. The FDA has officially approved BOTOX® for these medical and treatments.
Dr. Frazier says, "For cosmetic purposes, some patients require a little more BOTOX® in order to get a good result and improved appearance. Many health care providers who advertise at low, low prices are injecting BOTOX® in a limited number of units so they can sell at those prices. In other words, some may inject a few units simply between the eyes. At Vero Cosmetic Surgery and MediSpa, we normally give units in the full spectrum of muscles where lines or sagging can be alieviated by BOTOX® . That may include areas around the outer eyes and in the lower face if needed. Additionally, patients are scheduled to come in for follow-up after a few days to ensure they have a good result and that muscles causing frowns and drooping have relaxed. If the result is not as anticipated, we inject a ittle more BOTOX® Cosmetic free of charge. "
