Botox is a highly refined purified protein. There are absolutely no live bacteria in Botox injections. It is one of the safest and most effective treatments for relaxation of facial lines and smoothing out wrinkles. FDA approved and utilized in a simple injection for the reduction and removal of wrinkles, crow feet and forehead creases.
Botox cosmetic acts to block nerve impulses to the selectively treated tiny muscles of the face and neck, causing these small muscles to relax and not contract. This results in smoothing of the overlying skin, while untreated muscles contract normally. While results can be dramatic, there is no effect on normal facial expression.
The Botox Cosmetic procedure is typically performed in a quick 10-15 minute session, involving a few tiny injections, in areas selected for treatment. Botox Cosmetic remains only in the treated muscle, without traveling throughout the body. There is little in the way of discomfort with the injections and most patients can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. You may begin experiencing the results of Botox in 3 - 5 days... Results lasting approximately 3 - 6 months.
