BOTOX COSMETIC® injection is directed at facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It targets what are known as dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting. This is an injectable treatment derived from purified protein. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles giving your face a more refreshed appearance.
Treatment areas where BOTOX COSMETIC® injections can be used include frown lines between eyebrows, horizontal lines that run across the forehead and crow's feet around outer eyes.
"This is the first testimonial I have ever written, and I'm inclined because Maura has left quite the impression. She understands the products, she has learned the science, she has acquired the experience, and she has an intuitive eye for aesthetics without which no amount of experience could compensate for.
Prior to seeing Maura I spoke with several other injectionists. None of them had a decent understanding of what hyaluronic acid (the active ingredient in Juvederm) is, and that nearly ended my interest in fillers. I wanted someone who cares about being especially good at what they do, and anyone with that drive will have the curiosity to learn about the tools of their trade. Maura came recommended to me, and after peppering her with a tiring number of questions, all of which she could answer, I felt confident enough to undergo my first session. I've since had two more and intend to be a long term client.
Despite being young I have an inherited lack of volume in my mid-face which accentuates shadows and causes me to look somewhat drawn even when rested. Maura suggested locations were added volume would be most natural and impactful- the results are excellent. She knows my face better than I do, and I strongly recommend her."
