BOTOX® is the most popular non-surgical procedure for patients over 60. It is used to effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and "crow's feet". It relaxes the underlying muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
What causes wrinkles?
Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning, smoking and smiling.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the latest advancement in botulinum toxin therapy. It is used to safely, simply, and effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet”. BOTOX® is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles. By relaxing these underlying facial muscles, BOTOX® reduces the formation of wrinkles
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® actually prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. BOTOX® blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.
