Botulinum toxin type A injections are the most popular cosmetic procedures performed. In 2017, 7.2 million Botox® injectables were administered. Botox® is a non-invasive in nature, produces quick results, and very little recovery time. Botox® is the go-to treatment for those who want to rejuvenate their appearance
Botox® is designed to smooth dynamic wrinkles or the types of creases that form as a result of repeated facial movements like frowning, smiling, or squinting. When injected, the neurotoxin temporarily blocks nerve impulses to the muscles and causes them to relax. The result is a softer, smoother expression. The most popular areas of treatment are the frown lines, the forehead, corners of the mouth and chin plus wrinkles around the eyes.
Wrinkle-reducing treatment can last anywhere from three to six months.
All Botox® formulations are FDA approved and have been used safely and effectively for years.
