Botox – A well-studied treatment
Botox Cosmetic has been extensively studied as a safe and effective medical aesthetic treatment. It contains small amounts of highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium. There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose.
How does Botox work?
Botox is an injection performed by Dr. Ferland into the facial muscles of concern. She precisely injects the Botox to affect a temporary reduction of muscle activity. Cosmetic use of Botox® started once it was seen that treating the glabellar muscles (depressor muscles) would result in the eyes having a more open, lifted and youthful look.
Common Cosmetic Treatments Using Botox®
