BOTOX® (Neurotoxin)

Used in medical cosmetology as an anti-aging tool to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck. Common areas for treatment are frown lines, crow’s feet, lip lines, lines on the forehead and masseter muscles (to decrease jaw clenching and slim the lower face). Botox is also commonly used to treat excessive sweating under the arms as well as migraines.

How Does Botox Work?

When injected, Botox temporarily blocks the signal from the brain to the muscle, reducing the muscle’s range of motion and relaxing and smoothing dynamic lines. When injected superficially into the skin, Botox can have a similar impact on sebaceous glands, causing pores to contract.
