What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription neurotoxin medicine that is injected into muscles to keep these muscles from contracting.
Now Botox and Dysport are being used by younger patients who do not yet have wrinkling or fine lines in order to keep them from forming in the first place. This preventative treatment is proving very effective to put off the formation of the fine lines that lead to wrinkles and furrows.
If you are just beginning to think about facial rejuvenation Botox (or Dysport) is the perfect place to start. You will begin to see results after the first few days. Botox is safe and quick without any real downtime. You can even have it on your lunch break and be back to work without anyone knowing.
What is Botox Used for?
Botox is used to improve the look of moderate to severe facial wrinkles or small creases like:
- Crows Feet Lines: The outside corners of the eyes
- Frown Lines or 11’s: Vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines
- Brow Furrows: Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
- Neck Bands: Vertical pronounced bands in the neck

How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?
Botox is used to lift and shape the brow and to soften or reduce lines in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, above the lip, or in the jawline. A Botox procedure :
- Relaxes muscles in the face and neck by blocking nerve transmission at the site of injection.
- By relaxing these muscles they are not able to contract and wrinkle.
- This has a visible smoothing effect on the skin which provides a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

- Immediately after your Botox treatment you may have redness from the injection site.
- There usually is no noticeable evidence that you have had a Botox treatment within a few hours.
