What It Is

Botox is an injectable solution that is used for the reduction and or removal of:

  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows

  • Horizontal forehead lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Horizontal lines in the neck

  • Laugh lines on the nose

  • Migraine headaches

How Does It Work?

A few units of Botox are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. Botox treatment does not affect normal facial expressions.

Results

Dramatic responses are often seen within a few days. However the results are in most cases temporary and may need to be repeated after three to six months.

Comfort

When Botox is injected there is an initial minor sting for a few seconds. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.
