Facial expression lines are created by contractions of the underlying muscles, pulling the skin together when you smile, laugh or frown. An injectible protein, called Botox, gently relaxes these muscles that cause the overlying skin to fold and crease – wrinkles. A minute quantity of the Botox protein is injected into the wrinkle with a tiny micro-needle. The treatment itself generally requires less than 10 minutes. Within three to five days following the treatment, your worry, frown or laugh lines are reduced. The ongoing progression of the wrinkle will be prevented during the course of the treatment.
Botox is an interesting cosmetic treatment. Botox is one of the very few cosmetic treatments that originated from the medical treatment of eye spasms and safely used for over twenty years. Due to the long term use of Botox, there have been many studies which have shown positive benefits of Botox, with relatively rare, temporary side effects.
