Botox® is a popular physician administered treatment option for those with wrinkles due to years of facial expressions.
When Botox® is injected into the facial muscles it temporarily immobilizes the actions of the muscles in the injection site, causing the wrinkles to relax. Because of the way Botox® targets the wrinkles, it is mostly used only on the upper portion of the face. Some of the areas that Botox® targets best include frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and others that are a result of years of facial expressions. The relaxation of the treated areas will not affect the ability of the face to continue to be expressive.
Results are visible in as little as a week and can last up to four months.
About the Procedure
The Botox® procedure is fast and usually only consists of a few injections, depending on the areas to be treated. Discomfort or pain is mild and lasts only during the actual injection.
You will be able to return to normal activities immediately.
