Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that can become permanently etched on your face. By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Botox can smooth out those lines, causing wrinkle reduction, and restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
Injected into the skin, Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve impluses to the injected muscles. Many branches of medicine are using Botox injections today to treat TMJ, Bruxism, migraines, and of course, for cosmetic purposes.
Botox consists of a series of mild injections. On occasion minor bruising can occur but lasts only a few days. The Botox injections take about 15 minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox injections require no downtime and you will see the amazing results in a few days. A full effect may take up to two weeks but your new look will last for several months. Botox is a non-surgical prescription medication that temporarily reduces frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet.
