BOTOX is one of the most widely studied medications in the world with numerous clinical trials conducted. Areas most commonly treated with BOTOX are the forehead, glabella (frown lines between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet; however there are many other ways in which Botox can be utilized. Results can be seen within 3-10 days and generally last 3-5 months following treatments.
Usually it takes about 20-30 units of BOTOX to treat one area. Many clinics and spas don’t have the medical expertise that Four Seasons Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Plymouth, MN has developed, nor do they go through all the cautionary steps that we do.
