Botox represents a natural non-surgical way to rejuvenate an aging face. Botox can dramatically reduce dynamic wrinkles. Botox works by blocking the action of the muscles responsible for frown lines, resulting in smoother skin around the eyes or forehead. A minute amount of the substance is injected directly into the muscle, and within 24-72 hours, the muscles relax, reducing the appearance of frown lines.
Botox is a formulation of botulinum toxin type A. It is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium produces a protein that blocks the release of acetylcholine and relaxes muscles.
Today, BOTOX is produced in controlled laboratory conditions and given in extremely small therapeutic doses. Botox is ideal for improving and smoothing the skin between the eyebrows, the lines of the forehead. Botox has been used safely and successfully by cosmetic surgeons for over 10 years. The most common minor complication is a slight and very temporary drooping of the eyelid.
Botox is a safe, non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.
