What Is Botox?
Botox is a purified toxin that is injected into specific muscle groups. The most common areas treated are the forehead, crows feet and the glabella (frown lines). More recent studies have also shown that Botox can be used for those pucker lines on the upper lip area.
Treatment takes 5-15 minutes depending on how many areas are to be treated. Treatment is relatively painless.
Although it is a series of injection, only a slight prick to stinging sensation is felt. Results can be expected to last 4-6 months and in many cases last longer after several treatments.
One additional benefit achieved with Botox is that along with relaxing the muscles, the skin also relaxes smoothing out fine lines. Down time is very minimal.
All normal activities can be resumed within 3-4 hours and final results are seen anywhere form 48 hours to 14 days.
