Prevent and smooth existing wrinkles
Botox® Cosmetic is the brand name for a type of botulinum toxin (type A) When injected in small doses into specific facial muscles, the neurotoxin acts as a muscle relaxant, thereby minimizing the appearance of certain facial wrinkles.
Neurotoxin is safe. Botox is a purified toxin and contains no organism, which means it does not have the capacity to multiply and spread. The relaxed effect takes place where it is injected and where it is moved via massage.
Botox helps softens or completely erase facial lines and wrinkles, including vertical lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead furrows and lines at the borders of the lips.
Full effect is seen within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months. Side effects are few, rare and minimal. Some patients experience mild bruising at the injection site. Unwanted muscle weakness, eyelid weakness and allergic reactions are all rare potential complications.
