Botox injections help to weaken the fine muscles around the eyes and forehead that are responsible for creating the frown lines and deep wrinkles that can crop up in those areas. By selectively weakening the proper muscles, our trained surgeons can eliminate your wrinkles without disrupting your life.Treatment consists of a number of tiny injections made through a very fine needle that’s inserted directly into the muscle. The effects of the injections begin to appear in just a few days and the results last around four to six months, after which the injections must be repeated.
As you age, your face loses volume and this can lead to wrinkles and skin folds as well as features that aren’t as distinct as when you were younger. Injectables have been designed to subtly reduce these signs of aging and are one of the fastest growing areas in the field of cosmetic surgery. There are two basic types: fillers to restore lost volume, and botulinum toxin injections to lessen the appearance of wrinkles that occur due to smiling and frowning. Most fillers work by volumizing the lip or wrinkle and are gradually digested by the body, while botulinum toxin injections work by weakening the underlying muscles to decrease their overlying movement.
