Botox contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Botox is one of the most extensiely studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in over 75 countries worldwide.
Botox relaxes overactive facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines to form in between your brows, at the sides of your eyes (“crows’ feet”) and on your forehead. Over the years, repeated frowning and squinting causes our skin to furrow and fold. Botox is injected to temporarily reduce muscle activity in these areas. Patients begin to notice a visible smoothing of crow’s feet lines and frown lines beneath the brows.
Botox will not freeze your face in place. You will still be able to express the full range of emotions. Not the least of which will be expressing excitement at the sight of your results!
