Botox Cosmetic: Lessen The Appearance of Wrinkles

Botox Cosmetic is the only approved treatment for both moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox is a safe, quick, and affordable way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Today many women and men are receiving Botox Cosmetic injections. Botox Cosmetic, also known as Botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin that originally comes from a bacterium that causes muscle paralysis. This toxin has been used for many years for the treatment of various conditions that involve muscle spasm.

How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?
The muscles of our face are responsible for facial expressions like frowning or smiling. As we age, the repeated contractions of these muscles along with other changes in the skin result in the wrinkles that we see. Botox is injected into a muscle, resulting in that specific muscle relaxing and becomes unable to contract temporarily for four to six months thereby eliminating its pull on the skin and softening the wrinkles over this muscle. With continued treatments of Botox, new wrinkle formation is also prevented as repetitive muscle contractions that deepen facial lines over time are blocked. Aside from treating wrinkles, Botox can be used to reshape and rejuvenate facial features by altering the balance of muscles. Continue reading
