Botox is the application of naturally occurring proteins that can thwart the emergence of facial wrinkles. In particular, Botox prevents the appearance of age-related wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, mid-eyebrow lines, and wrinkles around the neck.
Botox doubles as a precautionary measure and a correction treatment that reduces muscle movement in treated areas to avoid the formation of new wrinkles. Results appear within 4 to 7 days since its injection.
Botox is commonly applied around areas most susceptible to movement such as:
A local anesthetic in the form of a cream is applied in treatment areas. The anesthetic takes effect within 20 minutes and treatment begins as intramuscular injections are via fine-tip needles. The average session duration is 15 minutes.
