BOTOX®

What it is

BOTOX® is one of the most popular treatments in the medical aesthetics industry. BOTOX® is not only affordable, but there is no downtime. The procedure only takes a few minutes, doesn’t require any anesthesia, and has minimal to no discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and will last for four to six months.

 

How it works

BOTOX® is a neuromodulator made from a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there’s no botulism risk when used properly. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes specific muscles by blocking nerve impulses resulting in wrinkles and lines to diminish and even disappear.

BOTOX® is especially effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set or only appear when you’re expressing, such as when you frown. If the muscle has a reduced ability to move and contract, you won’t form a wrinkle. Areas that can be treated include forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet or smile lines, bunny lines around the nose, chin dimpling and neck bands. Botox can also be used for facial slimming, excessive sweating of the hands and armpits and for migraine prevention.
