Botox

Is Botox safe and effective?

If you are between the ages of 18 and 65 with moderate to severe frown lines, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. Clostridia botulina bacteria produce a class of chemical compounds known as “toxins”.The Botulina Type A Toxin (BOTOX) is processed and purified to produce a sterile product suitable for specific therapeutic uses.Once the diluted toxin is injected, it produces a temporary paralysis of muscle by preventing transmission of nerve impulses to muscle.The duration of muscle paralysis generally lasts for approximately three to four months. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections into muscles. The effects are very localized and when administered by a PS. Skin Care Aesthetician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression. BOTOX® injections are customized for every patient, depending on his or her particular needs.These can be performed in areas involving the eyelid region, forehead, and neck. BOTOX® cannot stop the process of aging.It can however, temporarily diminish the look of wrinkles caused by muscle groups.BOTOX® injections may be performed as a singular procedure or as an adjunct to a surgical procedure. BOTOX®also has been used therapeutically for more than 17 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. BOTOX® is now FDA – approved for severe underarm and palm sweating when topical agents don’t work. For more information consult with your PS.
