When injected by an experienced dermatologist, Botox, or Botulinum Toxin Type A, is an effective treatment for improving aesthetic appearance and other medical conditions. Botox is an FDA approved medication that has been safely employed for more than 20 years by qualified physicians to relax the facial and neck muscles that cause wrinkles. Although Botox treatments cannot permanently eliminate wrinkles due to aging, Botox injections take effect in a week or less and last three to four months.
Since a Canadian ophthalmologist accidently discovered that Botulinum toxin injections relieve the undesirable signs of aging, thousands of satisfied patients have received Botox treatments. Botulinum toxin is naturally secreted by the bacterium that produces botulism. Simply put, Botox interferes with the release of a chemical called acetylcholine. This particular chemical is responsible for causing facial muscles to contract. Botox prevents acetylcholine from signaling muscle contractions where the facial muscles and nerves come together.
Botox injections have been proven to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead. The expertise of an experienced Botox injector can relieve crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and lines around the corners of a patient’s mouth and lips. Botox is also an effective means of treating facial asymmetries, neck bands and single hyperactive muscles.
