Botox® Cosmetic is a treatment that may reduce the contraction of muscles that cause facial lines over time, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you’re looking to reduce wrinkles and attain smoother looking skin, Botox is a great treatment option.
This popular injection is made out of botulinum toxin A and works by stopping the muscle movement in the muscles beneath your wrinkles. Once these muscles can no longer contract, the wrinkles smooth out. Botox is one of the most popular facial injections on the market and is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows and around the eyes.
Small amounts of Botox are injected with a tiny needle into the specific points of the muscles causing your wrinkles. The Botox then temporarily interferes with the ability of nerve impulses to cause contractions in those specific muscle areas. By relaxing these specific parts of the underlying frowning muscles, Botox smooths active facial lines and wrinkles.
Botox is relatively simple, virtually pain free, and a quick treatment that will dramatically smooth active wrinkles.* Individual results and recovery time may vary, but generally most people return to work immediately.
