Botox is Tried and True

In Houston, Botox is the most popular physician administered aesthetic procedure for a reason – it works, and it does so quickly.  Patients begin to see results within 3-5 days following treatment.  In fact, 11 million men and women have undergone Botox treatment.  Dr. Stephen Mahoney of West Houston Dermatology sometimes recommends Botox for patients looking to smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.  Botox is indicated for patients between the ages of 18 and 65.  In 2002 Botox was approved by the US Food & Drug Administration for the temporary treatment of frown lines; presently Botox is the only FDA approved treatment of its type.  Botox is actually a purified protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacterium, and it reduces the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows.   If you want to learn more about Botox or how is may help you, contact us today.
