Botox is an FDA-approved toxin that blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. In doing so, the injected muscles cannot contract, thus making the wrinkles relax and soften. Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn't require anesthesia. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort.
There are different types of botulinum toxin products (toxin A and B), each of which has different medical applications. Our doctor will choose the most appropriate product for your needs.
Areas of treatment include:
• Crow’s feet near the eyes
• Smoker’s lines around the mouth
• Worry lines on the forehead
• “Elevens” between the eyebrows
