Patients achieve a natural more relaxed appearance in just one week after Botox injections without looking frozen or surprised.
Botox® can help diminish the wrinkles and lines associated with aging, and is a fantastic way to fight the effects of time. It reduces the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes, smooths any creases on the forehead, and eliminates frown lines around the mouth. Botox® creates a temporary relaxation of the muscles that underlie the skin of the face, causing the skin to smooth out and appear more youthful. Botox works quickly and yields dramatic results, which generally last between 3-6 months.
Botox® is made from an organism called Clostridium botulinum, from which botulinum toxin is derived. Botulinum toxin is diluted with a saline solution to create Botox®. It was approved by the FDA in the late 1980s to treat certain health issues including migraines, jaw tension, excessive sweating, muscle spasms and chronic pain. Later it became apparent that Botox® could also treat lines and wrinkles, and it was approved for cosmetic uses in 2002.
During the Botox® procedure, Botox® is injected into the neuromuscular tissue with a thin needle. It is fairly simple and straightforward, and no anesthesia is required since the injections only cause mild discomfort. The process only takes about 10 minutes, and generally requires a few small injections. Botox® takes about one to three days to take effect, and when it sets in it causes the muscle cells to relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This is one of the most popular and effective anti-aging procedures because the results are tremendous, it requires no recovery time, and the process is fast and simple.
