Botox Cosmetic is used for the improvement in the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows, known as “frown lines,” and on the sides of the eyes, known as “crow’s feet.” Botox works by selectively paralyzing muscle groups that are responsible for skin contraction and the resulting wrinkles this activity causes. Botox’s benefits are temporary, with effects generally lasting from 3-6 months. Repeated treatment often results in longer lasting benefits. When properly used the effect is quite natural, making it almost impossible to pinpoint why the person may appear more youthful, relaxed and refreshed.
Botox is ideally suited for those wanting to look their best for a special occasion, such as a wedding, reunion or anniversary. It is given by injecting very small amounts, with a very fine needle, just beneath the skin over the target muscle and is usually painless.
