What is BOTOX®?
How Does it Work?
The magic in BOTOX® lies in its ability to block signals from the nerves to the muscles targeted. Once injected, the targeted muscle won’t be able to contract, meaning that wrinkles, forehead lines, and other facial issues can soften and relax. After injection, you should see this softening effect over the course of the following days and weeks.
Why Are BOTOX® Injections Right For You?
BOTOX® injections are a safe, quick, and effective way to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. If you are looking to address some of these conditions but are still unsure if BOTOX® is right for you, don’t fret! We’ve included detailed information below to give you a better understanding of this product and who may benefit from the treatment.
