Botox® is a substance made from clostridium botulinum bacterium, a neurotoxin. Botox® works by blocking the nerve signals in muscles, causing them to relax. When the facial muscles cannot contract, wrinkles and fine lines will soften.
As the injection wears off, wrinkles begin to reappear; however with multiple treatments the muscles can be trained to relax, causing the overall appearance of wrinkles to lessen.
Botox® is FDA approved to temporarily improve wrinkles and results typically last four to six months. It is particularly helpful diminishing:
Botox® is completely non-surgical and minimally-invasive. Using a very fine needle, a small amount of Botox® is directly injected into particular muscles that control wrinkle-prone areas of the face. Topical anesthetic and ice is available for sensitive areas. The injections only take a moment, and depending on the number of areas being treated, a full procedure can be done in about 30 minutes. After your procedure, the full Botox® effect can be seen within a week.
The length of time that results will last vary by individual. After the Botox® effects begin to fade, patients are urged to maintain their results by continuing treatments at Bardisa Medical Center.
