Botox

The injection of Botox has become very popular for reducing wrinkles and rejuvenating the aging face. The effects are only temporary, but the injections can be done quickly, all it takes is a couple of minutes and require no recovery time. When a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscle, it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. The effect is that it temporarily weakens and relaxes the facial muscles and smoothes or eliminates wrinkles in the skin for a few months.

Botox therapy is a procedure for softening facial lines and wrinkles around the eyes (“crows feet”), between the brows(“frown lines”) and running across the forehead(“worry lines”). The creases and lines most benefited are those accentuated by the muscles of expression used when we smile, frown and express astonishment, interest and attention. These are referred to as “dynamic” lines of expression.

Since the early 1900’s Botox has been performed on tens of thousands of patients with great success. Prior to this use, Botox has been extensively used on children and adults for a variety of eyelid and eyes problems for more than a decade. And on July 20, 2004, The FDA approved Botox to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be controlled with topical treatments such as prescription antiperspirants.

As medical science has advanced in treating the changes of maturity, Botox has become one of the most popular and sought after remedies for softening the facial lines of aging. For ease, safety and effectiveness, Botox is unmatched by any other method presently available for treating lines of the upper face.
