Botox Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment designed to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles that appear on the face over time. Also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, it is a muscle paralyzing neurotoxin. When injected into a predetermined area, Botox will temporarily relax the muscle and smooth facial creases.
There are two types of wrinkles: Static, formed by lax tissues, and Dynamic, created by repetitive muscle movements. The neurotoxin works on Dynamic wrinkles by blocking nerve stimulation to the muscles in the targeted area. As this occurs, the muscles release, easing and flattening the skin. It can provide dramatic improvement for Frown Lines (between the eyebrows), Crow’s Feet (at the corner of the eyes), Forehead Lines and Lipstick Lines (tiny wrinkles around the lips).
