Botox® is often considered the greatest of all injectables. It has been used around the world for more than twenty years and the most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.
Botox® was originally a therapeutic medication before it was developed under its recognized name. In aesthetic medicine, this injectable has been referred to as a "wonder drug" for its ability to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox® injections use a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.
Most people don't feel much discomfort during the procedure. The patient may want their skin numbed beforehand, especially if the palms or soles are being treated for excessive sweating. Various methods are available to numb the area, such as topical anesthesia, ice, and vibration anesthesia which uses massage to reduce discomfort.
A Beautiful You.
Botox® injections usually begin working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last up to six months. To maintain the effect, you'll need regular follow-up injections.
One of the primary concerns of patients new to the Botox® injectable is the possibility of looking "frozen." Due to the action of the Botox® cosmetic on facial muscles, optimal results come from treatment provided by an experienced provider.
