BOTOX® is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, and mouth. It is injected into muscles that over time cause skin to wrinkle, and once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about Botox©. First of all, BOTOX® is not a poison, but a protein created by a bacteria. There are no live bacteria in Botox©. Botox© works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox©.
> The Botox treatment only takes fifteen minutes.
> You will notice the full effect of Botox between 5 to 10 days.
> Botox can last between 3 to 6 months, depending on the targeted facial muscles
BOTOX® is also very useful in easing the pain from TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches.
