As technology progresses, so does the world of cosmetic enhancements. Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) is the action of injecting a purified protein into the facial muscles to enhance and smoothen skin. Common areas where Botox is injected are the forehead, eye region, and around the lips. This process will tighten and bypass wrinkles and aging marks.
By decreasing muscle movement in the face, this will reduce the appearance of aging and skin wear. Botulinum Toxin can be used to break down muscle mass within the facial region to appear slimmer if injected in certain areas. These esthetic treatments will last about three to four months before muscles regain muscle movement capabilities. Retreatment is recommended to ensure the longevity of muscle relaxation.
