BOTOX is an FDA approved injectable that can address the formation of wrinkles that are an inevitable part of the aging process non-surgically. Routine daily actions such as squinting in the sunlight or laughing cause certain facial muscles to contract. Over time, these muscle contractions ultimately create lines and wrinkles on your face.
Unlike dermal fillers, which are used to restore volume, BOTOX directly addresses the cause of these wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing your facial muscles, preventing them from contracting. Within a few days, the wrinkles formed by these muscle contractions will fade, revealing a smoother, more youthful complexion.
The entire treatment usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Patients will see the effects begin to take place in as little as one to two days, with continued ongoing improvement for up to 30 days following treatment typically lasting up to four months.
