More than 6 million Botox treatments are performed annually, making it one of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments around. This injectable procedure is performed in just a matter of minutes with virtually little to no pain. There is no downtime required afterwards for recovery, meaning patients can jump right back into their day. Botox is derived from a Clostridium botulinum neurotoxin, which is a naturally occurring organism. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles that are causing the fine line and creases to form in the skin through repetitive movements.
Some people opt to combine botox with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as dermal fillers. If you are interested in learning more about the botox procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
