When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® is a minimally invasive procedure that can leave you looking younger and refreshed.
This safe and extremely dilute toxin will paralyze certain, targeted facial muscles to decrease wrinkling of the overlying skin. Persons with tension and migraine headaches may be greatly helped with BOTOX® injections. Also, paralyzing the skin wrinkling in certain key areas such as the ‘crow’s feet’, forehead and area between the eyes caused by recurrent facial animation, further prevents wrinkles from becoming deeper with time. BOTOX® may also be used to combat ‘hyperhidrosis’, or excessive sweating of the axillary (armpit) areas and/or the hands.
