Collagen is a protein in our skin and is responsible for its elasticity. As we age, our body’s natural production of collagen diminishes. This causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear as our skin loses its ability to stretch. Other factors such as stress, smoking, and climate can also contribute to wrinkles.
Many patients turn to BOTOX, a safe injectable agent, to decrease the appearance of aging through reducing facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is known for helping people restore a more youthful-looking appearance and works by temporarily paralyzing select muscles of the face. In doing so, lines and wrinkles become smoother. BOTOX uses a toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA, which was approved by the FDA in 1991.
Results are immediate and can last for 3 to 4 months. You can repeat BOTOX treatment every few months. Getting a BOTOX injection is quick and only takes a few minutes. You can resume normal activities immediately after your injection.
In addition to reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX treatment is a popular choice among patients because it has many other wonderful benefits:
