What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is one of the most popular injectable treatments available today. This product is approved for use in 78 countries and been utilized successfully for cosmetic purposes since 2002.
BOTOX® can improve the appearance of most facial wrinkles, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Chin dimpling
How Does it Work?
While wrinkles and fine lines can form for a variety of reasons, one of their most common causes is an unavoidable one — facial movements. Throughout the course of a single day, everyone makes countless facial expressions when they speak, eat, smile, frown, or laugh by contracting their facial muscles. Over time, the repeated contraction of these muscles causes wrinkles to form in the skin above them; this is why wrinkles are particularly common near areas where facial movements occur, including the eyes, eyebrows, mouth, nose, and forehead.
BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles to form. During treatment, this product is injected into the muscles responsible for your individual wrinkles, gently relaxing them and allowing the wrinkles and fine lines above them to smooth and soften. How long does Botox last? Typically, the relaxation of these muscles only lasts about four months, so patients must receive additional injections after this period to maintain their results.
What are the Benefits of BOTOX®?
- Clinically-tested and physician-approved treatment
- Minimally-invasive procedure
- Eliminates wrinkles and fine lines for up to four months
- No downtime and minimal treatment discomfort
