Botox is renowned worldwide as an effective anti-aging treatment that can correct frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines in between the brows. Don’t let age lines keep you from looking as youthful as you feel. Our specialists at Servicios Quirurgicos del Caribe in Mayaguez will answer questions you may have and help you decide if this exciting treatment is right for you.
What Is Botox?
Our regular expressions—frowning when we are unhappy, squinting from the sun, and even smiling when we are happy—are just some reasons we develop frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles between the brows. Botox is the only FDA-approved treatment for temporarily improving the appearance of deep wrinkles between the brows and crow’s feet.
Botox is designed with a highly purified protein that targets the underlying muscle responsible for your expression lines. Your specialist will administer Botox in these muscles which will temporarily reduce their activity. After treatment, you will notice age lines softening and smoothing, creating a more even complexion.
What Areas Can I Treat With Botox?
Your specialist will target muscles around the following areas:
- The sides of your eyes
- The forehead
- The space between your brows
What Results Can I Expect?
While results vary from person to person, you may start to see softer-looking skin over the following 48 hours from your appointment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
You are a good candidate for Botox if you:
- Experience moderate-to-severe wrinkles around or between the eyes and forehead

- Are at least 18 years of age
You may not be an ideal candidate if you:

- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have a skin infection at the treatment site

How Long Does Botox Last?
Results usually last around 4 months. Many factors affect these outcomes including your facial structure, the condition of your skin, past experiences with Botox, and your overall health and diet.
