You’ve heard about it in movies, speculated if your coworker has had it done and now you’re thinking of getting it done yourself. BOTOX® cosmetic is one of the most well known cosmetic treatments in the world, and with good reason: it’s extremely effective. Do you hate the effect that time has had on your skin? If you’re looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore a youthful glow to your face, BOTOX® cosmetic may be for you!

What is BOTOX® cosmetic?

BOTOX® cosmetic is one of the few FDA-approved treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. One of the most extensively studied aesthetic medical treatments in the US, BOTOX® has been found to be safe and extremely effective. BOTOX® cosmetic contains a small amount of substance derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which temporarily reduces muscle activity around the area of treatment. BOTOX® cosmetic is injected into the skin around the patient’s problem areas.

Stephen M. Soll, MD, FACS is one of the first in the country to use BOTOX® and has performed thousands of these procedures for over 25 years. Dr. Soll is conservative in his approach and will tailor to the individual, leaving a natural pleasing result.

How does BOTOX® cosmetic work?

BOTOX® cosmetic targets the underlying cause of frown lines and wrinkles, which is the excessive muscle contractions from frowning, laughing and squinting over many years. Dr. Stephen Soll, MD, FACS at Soll Eye will target these muscles by injecting them with BOTOX® cosmetic. BOTOX® reduces muscle activity temporarily, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin!
