Botox is actually a toxin called botulinum, which is separated as a therapeutic neurotoxin that can be purified for a very effective treatment.
It essentially blocks the signal between facial muscles and the brain that tells those muscles to move. The result is a relaxed muscle and smoothing out the skin’s fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. We can apply the treatment via injections around the mouth and nose, the eyes, and the forehead.
Of course, Botox is a great (and safe) way to enhance your appearance. But there are medical uses of Botox as well. Namely reducing eye twitching and excessive sweating, TMJ and bruxism issues, along with preventing migraines.
Getting treatment with Botox is also an easy, non-invasive procedure that can be completed in one visit. You should see results within one to three days after treatment, with only some temporary swelling, discomfort, or minor bruising as potential side effects.
Botox typically lasts anywhere from three to six months. After which, you’ll need touch ups to maintain the effects of your treatment.
