Combat the Effects of Aging with BOTOX®
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX Cosmetic, known as BOTOX®, is the brand name for onabotulinum toxin A. Approved in the U.S. for cosmetic use since 2002, it works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscle, which temporarily relaxes it.
Using a very fine needle, BOTOX® is injected in small amounts directly into the desired muscle. Mild pressure may be felt at the injection site which stops immediately after the injection is completed.
There is no long term discomfort, and the entire procedure takes less than ten minutes.
By relaxing the muscles that create expressions, skin is left with a smoother and less wrinkled appearance. BOTOX® can take up to two weeks to completely take effect but typically starts working within the first few days. While results vary from patient to patient, treatments typically last between 3-6 months.
