BOTOX Cosmetic Injection – Anti-Wrinkle Procedure

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is the commercial trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A, derived from a bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.

BOTOX possesses muscle-relaxing properties and is used for muscle relaxing injections.

What Is BOTOX Used For?

BOTOX injections are used as a cosmetic treatment to improve the look of fine lines.

Besides a wrinkle treatment, BOTOX has been used successfully for the treatment of the following health conditions:

  • headaches,
  • backaches,
  • blepharospasm (eye spasm),
  • strabismus (misalignment of the eye),
  • painful muscle spasms,
  • excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

BOTOX Cosmetic Injection – Anti-Wrinkle Procedure

The BOTOX Cosmetic procedure uses muscle relaxing injections to minimize or smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face.

The BOTOX procedure is very simple, nonsurgical and minimally invasive. It usually takes a few minutes and generally has no recovery period.

BOTOX is typically used in people aged 18 to 65.

How does BOTOX Cosmetic Injection work?

When injected into muscles, BOTOX blocks nerve signals that instruct your muscles to contract and reduces the activity of the muscles. Actually, it causes paralysis so the muscles do not contract.

After treatment, the skin flattens and remains smooth and unwrinkled.

How Long Will BOTOX Cosmetic Results Last?

BOTOX treatment results are not permanent. However, you can receive BOTOX injections every 4 months.

Cost of BOTOX

$200 - $400 for each area injected.
