Botox is an FDA approved prescription molecule that is injected into facial muscles in tiny amounts to relax the muscles that contract to cause unsightly wrinkles – 

  • The first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults
  • A quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime
  • You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines
  • It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines

Q. What is Botox?

Botox is  botulinum toxin type A, specifically On abotulinumtoxin A, which is injected into the facial muscles to  temporarily relax the  muscle. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions. This improves the appearance of wrinkles. It can also slow the formation of new lines by preventing contraction of facial muscles.

Q. Muscle relaxant? Isn’t that dangerous?

Not at all! Botox Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment for treatment of dynamic wrinkles on the face that are caused due to expressions made after contraction of specific facial muscles. These muscles get relaxed due to the botox and so, the wrinkle disappears. Moreover, very tiny amounts are used and these do not spread to anywhere beyond the target muscle. It will never go into your blood stream and so there are no serious side effects at all.

Q. Where is Botox injected?

 Cosmetically, Botox is used in the following areas:

  • The forehead to treat the horizontal lines that form when you look up.
  • The area between the eyebrows (glabellar region), to treat the vertical lines formed when you  frown. 
  • Around the eyes, to treat the lines (commonly known as crow’s feet) that appear when you smile.
