BOTOX allows patients to age gracefully by softening the entrenched dynamic wrinkles that form as a result of repetitive facial expressions, such as laughing, smiling, frowning, and squinting. By temporarily incapacitating the tiny contracting facial muscles that form wrinkles, BOTOX restores a more youthful, inviting countenance.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a purified protein derived from Botulinum Toxin A. It is FDA-approved for the cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet. These wrinkles form over time as a result of repetitive frowning, smiling, squinting, and laughing. BOTOX works by blocking the nerve signals that tell the facial muscles to contract and thus form creases. After BOTOX injections, the lines soften, making the face appear more relaxed, youthful, and radiant. BOTOX can be administered to younger patients who wish to prevent the signs of aging before they occur or to older patients seeking to rewind the clock.
