Botox is the brand name of botulinum toxin and it’s produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox temporarily blocks signals from nerves to muscle cells so that the injected muscle can’t contract. This action makes wrinkles relax and soften giving a natural, more youthful appearance. It can also slow the formation of the new crease by preventing the contraction of facial muscles.
Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. When used to minimize wrinkles, it is administered in very small doses. A treatment is minimally invasive and is considered a safe, effective treatment for fine line and wrinkles.
Where should you get Botox?
Your treatment provider should be a licensed medical professional such as a nurse or physician, who is properly trained and certified with experience. These medical professionals are experts in facial anatomy and their training is not limited to a weekend course. When these injections are performed by a properly trained medical professional, your results will be fantastic!
