Botulinum toxin, most commonly referred to as Botox (though technically, “Botox” is one of several brand names to offer this treatment) is performed to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and creases in the face. Botox works by targeting and temporarily ceasing the movement of the underlying muscle that is contracting to create these lines and creases. Botulinum Toxin injections take just minutes to administer and require no downtime for recovery afterwards. Results can be seen in three to four days after the treatment, with full results appear in about a week and lasting for three to four months (sometimes as long as 6 months).
Botulinum Toxin can be used to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown furrow lines, and forehead lines in the face. Sometimes it may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation treatments for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
