What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a non-surgical injectable that’s derived from botulinum toxin. It has incredible cosmetic and medical effects and is best known for reducing and preventing facial wrinkles, folds, and fine lines that are caused by muscle movement, also known as dynamic wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for creating movements in the target area. Once injected, the toxin will block nerve signals to the muscles. This not only smooths out wrinkles by stopping their mechanical movement, but it also prevents future wrinkles from forming and getting worse — leaving you with a smooth and youthful appearance.
What Can Neurotoxins Like BOTOX® Do for You?
Neurotoxins can prevent and smooth the visible signs of aging that are caused by dynamic movement across the face and neck. One of the most common uses for BOTOX® is on the forehead, where it works to eradicate frown lines and furrowed brow lines, as well as around the eyes to prevent crow’s feet from forming. Our experts are here to help ensure that you’re getting the results you want from your neurotoxins, with our personalized, tailored care.
What Areas Can We Treat with BOTOX®?
We can treat a broad range of areas with BOTOX®. From forehead frown and scowl lines to your temples, cheekbones, eye area, nasolabial folds, lips, chin, and cheeks down to your neck and chest! No matter where we treat you, you can expect world-class results from our talented injector.
