What? Why? & Where Botox
What is Botox?
Botox is a safe injectable drug that is made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used medically to treat some muscular conditions, pain, headache, spasms, and excessive sweating. It is used cosmetically to reduce wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that over time, from repeated contractions or movement, contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
How is Botox applied?
Botox is injected into the muscle that is causing surface wrinkling of the skin. Depending upon the severity or location of the wrinkle, different amounts may be injected to achieve desired results.
Botox reduces or eliminates the appearance of wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin. There is no “down time”, and the procedure can be done in half an hour or less. These results can last for months.
