How does Botox work?
Botox uses a chemical called Clostridium botulinum to freeze the muscles which lie under the facial skin. This process helps the skin relax and smooth out, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also preventing the skin from moving, which helps counter new wrinkles from forming.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is FDA-approved and considered safe for use. Doctors have used Botox for many years and it has proven to be a trustworthy and effective answer to unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Botox treatments last only minutes and involve your dermatologist using a super-fine needle to administer the Botox into the facial skin, helping reduce irritation.
Can Botox help me?
Botox is recommended for adults that are over 18 years old and in good general health. Additionally, a good candidate for Botox should not be allergic to certain medications or chemicals. Finally, candidates should have realistic expectations for their results and understand that Botox requires touch-up appointments to maintain the facial skin’s appearance.
