BOTOX® Cosmetic, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent works at the nerve endings that lead to muscles. Normally your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so that they can contract and move. The electrical message is transmitted by a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. BOTOX® Cosmetic works at the nerve endings that cause the underlying muscle contraction and blocks the release of acetylcholine and, as a result, the contraction weakens or stops, creating a relaxation and tightening of the facial skin, which yields an improved cosmetic appearance.
Unlike fillers and over-the-counter skin care creams, Botox treatment actually prevents the formation of wrinkles. That’s why women and men as early as their late 20’s are undergoing this treatment, so that they don’t develop lines. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that contract to make wrinkles and lines. Once injected, the lines can no longer etch on that area of the face. Facial lines and wrinkles are often cosmetically displeasing and distressing to some individuals. Sometimes people are misinterpreted as being angry, sad, tired or anxious. BOTOX® Cosmetic can successfully reduce the signs of aging and help restore a more energetic and youthful appearance.
Treatment involves a few tiny injections - no anesthesia is required. The entire procedure takes approximately five minutes, and any discomfort is minimal and brief. Treatment results persist for three to four months on average. BOTOX treatment can also be used to alleviate excessive sweating. More than 11 million people have been treated with BOTOX Cosmetic since its FDA approval in 2002.
