Botox Cosmetic

OnabotulinumtoxinA, also known as Botox® Cosmetic, is an injectable muscle relaxant which effectively reduces facial wrinkles for a significantly more youthful appearance.

A person’s facial expression is controlled by opposing muscle groups. A skilled injector balances these upward and downward forces. The desired result creates the ideal amount of lift, eliminating or markedly reducing unwanted horizontal wrinkles in the forehead or brow, or smoothing frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. People want to be able to convey emotions with their face and don’t want a “frozen” expression. The effect of the injections wears off after several months, and patients need repeat treatments.

Sometimes no single solution works to achieve your goal. The doctor will discuss a variety of options to help determine the best choices for your needs. You may also consider Injectable Fillers or Advanced Skin Care treatments.

Botox has other uses as well, including treatment of muscle spasms, migraine headaches, and even severe underarm perspiration.
