What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that will reduce the appearance of deep lines and creases by relaxing facial muscles, so wrinkles can soften and diminish.* The active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, has been FDA approved since 2002. It can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
How does Botox work?
Botox blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. This treatment will relax the muscles so they do not contract as intensely. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract as they normally do.* Botox treatments may also be used as a preventative measure against lines and wrinkles (like crow’s feet) becoming deeper over time.*
Are the treatments safe?
Botox injections have been used safely and effectively for over fifteen years to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders. Each year many thousands of patients receive Botox treatments for a variety of conditions. It is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of aging.
What can I expect from the treatments?
Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of Botox is injected, very precisely, into several locations in the face. No sedation or local anesthetic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately. When injected in small amounts, Botox works to incapacitate those muscles that cause you to frown. The injections themselves take about 10 minutes, and the effect usually lasts 2-4 months.
