Botox® Injections in the Minneapolis, MN Area
Since Botox® Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002 for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, its popularity has soared. Botox is consistently one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed each year. Interestingly, Botox was introduced to the world in the late 1980s by ophthalmologists who began using it to treat optic muscle disorders.
What is Botox®?
Millions of women and men already know about Botox® Cosmetic – a nonsurgical treatment that helps temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Those moderate to severe vertical lines between the brows are sometimes referred to as 1s, 11s, or 111s.
Why do I get 1s?
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, severe frown lines remain, even when your muscles aren’t contracting.
With Botox® Cosmetic, you can get real, noticeable results and still look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
No surgery. No recovery time.
Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. With a few tiny injections, Botox blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead – called the corrugator and procerus muscles – reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for real, noticeable results.
How fast will I see results?
Botox® Cosmetic starts to work within 24 to 48 hours. In clinical trials, a majority of people saw significant improvement at seven days, with results continuing to improve for up to a month.
How long will my results last?
Visible results have been proven to last up to four months. Your results may vary.

XEOMIN & DYSPORT
Similar to Botox®, Xeomin and Dysport are neurotoxins that paralyze muscles and smooth wrinkles.
Xeomin is an injectable prescription medicine administered to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines between eyebrows. It is also used to treat neck and head position pain caused by cervical dystonia in adults. It can also help treat abnormal eyelid spasms in adults who have previous Botox treatments. While few people encounter side effects from Xeomin, it is imperative you do not use this medicine if you are allergic to any type of botulinum toxin product.
Dysport is a prescription injection used to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between eyebrows. As a person ages, the muscles above and between their eyebrows frequently contract and tighten, which causes wrinkles. With one injection of Dysport into each of the five points between and over the eyebrows, muscles can be blocked from contracting and tightening. It is ideal to use in adults aged 65 years and younger.
