What is BOTOXВ®?
BOTOXВ® Cosmetic anti-aging treatment is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in people 18 to 65 years of age.
BOTOXВ® Cosmetic diminishes or eliminates the appearance of dynamic wrinkles because it paralyzes the underlying muscle causing the wrinkle. When injected directly into the muscle, the purified Botulinum toxin type A prevents the muscle from contracting by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscle. Because the muscle cannot contract, the wrinkle cannot form and it gradually diminishes.
BOTOXВ® Cosmetic Injection:
BOTOXВ® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscle causing the dynamic wrinkles. A very small needle is used to minimize discomfort. The injection feels like a small prick with a little stinging. The BOTOXВ® Cosmetic enters the nerve endings and blocks the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that causes muscles to contract. The paralysis takes 1 to 5 days to occur and peaks in two to four weeks. Results last from three to six months. The effect gradually wears off, allowing the dynamic wrinkle to return. Thus, follow up treatments are necessary to maintain the desired result. Repeat treatments may lead to improved results as the muscle causing the wrinkles becomes less responsive over time, a process called chemical denervation.The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes. Since the procedure is non-surgical, no recovery time is needed, and patients can return to work or other activities immediately.
