Botox injections are one of the most common cosmetic procedures. Botox, technically known as the botulinum toxin, is a naturally occurring substance that is used both for cosmetics and medication. Cosmetically, Botox is injected into target facial muscles to weaken them for months at a time in order to limit their effect on wrinkle creation.
On the face, wrinkles develop along the mouth, eyes, forehead and neck. These unsightly marks are a part of the aging process but are also formed with repeated facial movements like smiling, frowning and squinting. Sun exposure is also a major contributor to wrinkles. Botox is a quick and convenient injection that prevents these specific muscles from wrinkling the skin on your face.
Dr. Fred Bressler, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will be able to explain in greater detail how Botox can work for you.
