Iron those wrinkles away with Botox®! Botox ® is used to treat our muscles. It is a protein used to help give our hard working muscles a vacation from their full time jobs. We inject the Botox® protein between the nerve root ending and muscle tissue acting as an opaque wall temporarily blocking communication between the two. This allows our muscles to relax and at the same time allows our skin to release the wrinkles. Results take 1-14 days to see and last around 3 months.
Botox® is FDA approved to treat the “11”s between the brow also known as the glabella as well as crows feet which are the wrinkles around your eyes. Botox ® may also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) under the armpits. Effects of this treatment may be seen anywhere from 3 months to 6 months.
