What is BOTOX®?
As we age, our skin gradually loses its ability to produce collagen, which makes it less elastic and more vulnerable to developing fine lines and wrinkles. Continuous contractions of facial muscles form folds beneath the skin surface that become deeper over time, which is why the signs of aging are usually concentrated around those areas of the face that are exposed to physical deformation due to facial expressions, such as smiling or squinting.
BOTOX®is a non-invasive injectable that acts as a neuromodulator. This means that the treatment temporarily reduces contractions of specifically targeted muscle groups underneath the skin by blocking the production of muscle-activating neurotransmitters, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and prevents the development of deeper wrinkles in the affected area. Muscle movement returns in a couple of months, causing the skin to return to the original state.
Visible results can be seen within 24 to 48 hours and expect to see the full effect of the injections after approximately 30 days. Results last three to six months.
It is the first FDA-approved treatment that can visibly reduce severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults. BOTOX® is supported by more than 16 years of published studies. The company uses state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities under strict quality control regulations to ensure consistent results from every vial.
