The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes, and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
The Botox treatment consists of tiny injections to the problem area. These injections temporarily alleviate excessive muscle activity responsible for your unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, relaxing them so they are temporarily less active. This procedure is minimally invasive and there is no down time, allowing you to resume your daily life with no interruptions.
The actual treatment takes less than 30 minutes and is shown to last 3-6 months on average. Individual results may vary. You can expect to see results within a few days and continue to notice improvement for up to two weeks.
