BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Botox cosmetic isn’t just for the rich and famous or the vain and narcissistic—in fact, Botox is for anyone who is concerned with looking their best and being comfortable in the skin they’re in! By injecting small amounts of Botox into areas of your skin that have become looser or have begun to show your age, we’re able to effectively paralyze the muscles in targeted areas, which will give your skin a taut, smooth, vibrant appeal. Botox cosmetic is safe for anyone ages 18-65 and can severely reduce the presence of age lines, crows feet or forehead lines in a pinch! We’re also proud to offer a reliable alternative to Botox as well, called Dysport, which achieves similar, lasting results.
How does Botox treatment work?
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox, Dysport) blocks the release of a neurotransmitter (a chemical messenger) known as acetylcholine from nerve cells. Acetylcholine normally transmits nerve impulses to muscle cells, causing them to contract. Without acetylcholine, the affected nerve is unable to send a signal to the muscle it supplies, resulting in a weakened or paralysed muscle. The effect of Botox injections is restricted to the area being treated, and because the nerve fibres usually regenerate after a couple of months, the effect is only temporary.
