Botox® treatment is a revolutionary product that is injected into the muscles of facial expression to prevent and reverse facial wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles such as those around the eyes, forehead and around the mouth could be a thing of the past. Botox® targets the junction between the motor nerves and facial muscles to weaken the muscles for a period of time of approximately 4 months. The injection of this product eliminates winkles without disturbing normal function.
The injections are performed with ultra-small needles and it is relatively painless. The effects are not permanent and the injections may be repeated two to three times a year to retain the effect.
It is important to remember that Botox is useful to treat expression lines from forming or getting any deeper. Once a wrinkle has formed and is getting deeper, that area may be treated with a facial filler such as Juvederm® or Voluma®.
