Botox used as a cosmetic treatment reduces the appearance of skin wrinkles and lines. Botox limits muscle contraction and promotes muscle relaxation. This product can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. Botox can be used to treat wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyebrows, and those around the eyes, mouth, chin and neck. If you would like to minimize wrinkles and have smoother younger looking skin, Botox, may be a great treatment option for you.
GET THE FACTS
Botox is a neurotoxin. Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin; however, it is FDA-approved and has over 20 years of research proving it to be safe, especially in the very small doses used cosmetically.
Botox prevents muscle contraction, therefore paralyzing the muscle temporarily and causing the muscles to relax. The lack of muscle contraction prevents skin wrinkling and improves fine lines. Prolonged relaxation continually improves skin appearance and increasingly minimizes wrinkle appearance over time.
• Botox is customized per person for a natural look, and only relaxes the muscles injected, thus, allowing the face to retain normal expression and appearance, minus the wrinkles.
• Improves and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Can also be used for therapeutic reasons such as excessive armpit sweating and migraines when injected by a trained physician
