What is Botox?
Botox temporarily disrupts wrinkle-causing muscle contractions in the face and smooths existing wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes.
Botox is the brand name of the injectable protein Botulinum Toxin A, which is a muscle-relaxing agent that has been used safely for many years to treat muscle spasms. Not only can Botox improve lines and wrinkles that already exist, but it can prevent wrinkles from forming. For this reason, many younger patients are turning to Botox as a way to prevent some of the visible signs of aging.
Botox is not a permanent treatment. It must be repeated every 3-4 months to maintain your results. Many patients consider Botox to be a part of their regular regimen for looking good.
