What Is Botox®
Would you like to reduce the wrinkles around your eyes and mouth? Are you tired of forehead creases that make you look angry or tired? Botox is a proven, effective way to have the unwrinkled, young-looking face you desire.
For years, Botox injections have been among the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures because of the unique effectiveness and safety of Botox in treating certain types of facial wrinkles. Botox can improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines around the eyes, frown lines around the mouth, and vertical forehead creases that develop between the eyes which make a person look sad or angry. In addition, Botox injected into the lower face and neck muscle (platysma) may provide temporary improvement of some of the visible signs of aging in these areas.
How it works: Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, meaning that the injected muscle cannot contract. This “muscle blocking” is what makes your wrinkles relax and soften.
How Is a Botox Procedure Done?
Receiving a Botox injection takes only a few minutes and does not require anesthesia. Botox, a liquid, is injected with a fine needle into specific facial muscles with only minor discomfort. The treatment generally takes 3-7 days to take full effect.
How Long Does Botox Last?
The effects from Botox will last 3-4 months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. However, these lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because those muscles are being trained to relax.
