Botox is a safe and effective aesthetic treatment used to diminish lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles. It works by smoothing the skin’s surface, giving it a more youthful, revitalized appearance. Administered by a Nurse Practitioner with over 12 years of experience.
Since 1989, Botox has been used with great success for both medical and cosmetic purposes. Its active ingredients are non-toxic forms of Clostridium botulinum, which causes harmless temporary relaxation of the muscles. This softens fine lines and prevents deeper lines from forming.
Botox is one of the most versatile non-surgical cosmetic treatments available for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It works best on lines caused by facial expressions called dynamic wrinkles.
Since Botox blocks nerve impulses that allow muscle movement, the skin is firmer, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles is reduced. Botox can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, or as a stand-alone procedure.
Botox is commonly used to correct forehead wrinkles and the vertical lines that appear between your brows when you frown often referred to as the “11”s or frown lines. Botox is also a great treatment option for crows feet.
