How it Works
Botox® is used around the forehead and eyes to soften the fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® is delivered to the muscles of the face with tiny needles. It is used to relax the muscles in the skin that constantly fold the skin into fine temporary lines and later deeper lines. The body will slow or stop the process that causes these lines to form and will actually allow the skin to fill them in sometimes to a dramatic degree.
Botox injections for control of facial wrinkles is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country.
Botox is currently being used for many reasons, some of which are covered by insurance some are not. Botox is not permanent since your skin is constantly changing over time. Even though Botox injections don't last forever, they can last up to 4 months with some lingering effects after that. Most Botox patients come back every 6 months to get a new injection.
