Botox ® is a non-surgical injection that is popularly used to temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and thick folds in the neck.
Botox ® works by blocking nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyzes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a fresher, smoother appearance to the skin. It also blocks the nerve impulse that triggers muscle hyperactivity. Excessive sweating is another problem for which Botox ® is an effective treatment.
Each treatment generally lasts up to 6 months, at which point further injections may be used as long as you are responding to treatment. To learn more about whether or not Botox ® is a good choice for you, please schedule an appointment to speak with our surgeon.
