Botox is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure that is administered by injection to reduce lines and wrinkles and creases in the face. Botox works by stopping repetitive muscle movement that is creating the lines, creases and wrinkles in the face. The Botox procedure takes just minutes to administer, is virtually painless, and requires no downtime after the procedure to recover. Many patients find they can fit a Botox treatment in on their lunch hour and then go straight back about their day.
The Botox results can last 3-4 months. In some cases, a patient may opt to combine the Botox treatment with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as Dermal Fillers (which are also injectables, but rather than stopping muscle movement, they add filler to areas of the face that are showing signs of aging due to loss of volume).
