BOTOX® has become a very popular solution to facial skin aging.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® injections are derived from the botulinum toxin, a substance that has the ability to temporarily paralyze or reduce muscle activity. The injections are primarily delivered to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, fine lines, and creases in the face. It can also be used as a treatment for neck spasms and chronic migraine, as well as excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis.

What does BOTOX® treat?

Botulinum toxin injections work by blocking certain chemical signals from the nerves that cause the muscles to contract. Because of this, the treatment is able to temporarily relax the underlying facial muscles that cause wrinkles and creases.

Common Uses:

  • Frown lines found between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet (lines found at the corners of the eyes)
  • Furrows or forehead lines that form when raising the eyebrows
  • Lip lines, neck bands, slims hypertrophied masseter muscles, reduce bunny lines of the nose,turns up corners of the mouth.

What should I expect during my BOTOX® appointment?

Your skin will be cleaned and iced. Before photos may be taken. Your provider will deliver tiny amounts of BOTOX® directly into the skin or facial muscle using a thin needle. The number of injections administered will depend upon the extent of the area you wish to be treated and the extent of your muscle activity.

What results can I expect from the BOTOX® procedure?

Patients are usually advised to return to their normal activities immediately aside from working out aggressively the day of the treatment. We recommend not lying down for 3-4 hours and you’re advised to take extra caution not to rub the treated areas since this can unintentionally displace the toxin to other areas of the face.

The results gradually become noticeable a few days after the treatment. BOTOX® effects usually last 3 to 6 months. Follow-up injections may be needed in order to maintain results.
