Botox (botulinumtoxinA), is a purified protein that temporarily improves the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in adults younger than 65 years of age. Botox® is the most popular treatment for reducing and eliminating frown muscles between the eyes, forehead creases, and crow’s feet near the eyes.
Botox works by blocking the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Botox® Cosmetic, is sometimes referred to “a facelift in a bottle”. When small doses are injected directly into the muscles, impulses from the nerves to the injected muscle causing the wrinkles are blocked – allowing them to relax. This relaxing of the muscle allows the skin to smooth out persistent lines that which developed over time.
Botox treatments are nearly pain free and usually last about 10-15 minutes. Botox will keep the muscles that cause lines relaxed for up to 3 to 4 months. Results are apparent within days.
