Botox

Botox® is a purified protein produced by the clostridium  botulinum bacteria and works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Unwanted lines and wrinkles can be reduced by relaxing the muscle in the associated area. Injection of Botox®  into the small muscles causes those specific muscles to halt their function, thereby improving the appearance of the wrinkles. The goal is to decrease the wrinkles in the treated area. This paralysis is temporary, and re-injection is necessary within three to four months. Botulinum A Toxin (Botox®) injection has been FDA approved for use in the cosmetic treatment for:

  • Glabella area (Procerus and Corrugator Supercili muscles)
  • Forehead area (Occipitofrontalis muscle)
  • Lateral area of the eye (Orbicularis Oculi muscle)
