Stop aging in its tracks, take years off the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For years doctors have been using Botox to treat and address facial wrinkles and creases. Botox is FDA-approved and has been used as one of the most popular non-surgical treatments to treat the appearance facial aging.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
When used in small amounts this neurotoxin helps temporarily paralyze muscles and nerves.
How Does It Work?
As our facial muscles move, they force our skin to crease and move with the muscles, causing wrinkles and fine lines to occur over time. Botox will work by paralyzing only the specific muscles that create the wrinkle or crease.
In the days following the procedure, a gradual smoothing will occur in the affected sites. The effects of Botox will take 3-5 days to set in.
The effects of Botox can last between 4-6 months. Results can vary per patient.
