Botox® is a simple and safe way to minimize wrinkles, caused by contractions of the underlying facial muscles. Muscles around the eyes and forehead will, over time, create wrinkles, lines and furrows in the skin. By relaxing these contracting muscles, frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles can be erased. Botox® blocks impulses from the nerve to your muscle, relaxing the muscle. The relaxing of these facial muscles improves the appearance of these lines and wrinkles resulting in a softer, smoother look. When used in small doses in these mimetic muscles that cause wrinkles of the forehead and face, existing creases fade and the formation of new wrinkles will be prevented.
Botox® is injected into the muscles of the face using tiny micro needles. The procedure takes minutes to perform and begins to act in 3 to five days. You may return to work or other activities immediately after treatment. Botox® treatments last approximately 3 to 4 months, with enhanced duration after multiple treatments. The treatment will take years off of your appearance.
