What is Botox?

When Botox is injected, it temporarily paralyzes muscles and can be used to treat furrows and wrinkles in the skin. In addition to its cosmetic applications, Botox is also used to treat various medical problems, including neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back pain, jaw pain, and migraines.

Botox Procedure

The Botox injection procedure is quick and simple. A Botox injection requires no anesthetic, but some providers may choose to numb the injection site area. Various options exist to numb the area and to minimize discomfort. Next, a narrow gauge, or tiny needles, will be inserted directly into the muscle, and the Botox is injected. The injection blocks a chemical called Acetylcholine which normally causes muscle contraction and causes wrinkles.

The procedure takes 10-15 minutes depending on the number of areas injected. Many women and men utilize their lunch hour to regain a youthful look through Botox. Results generally appear within 7 days, and may last up to 6 months. Recovery is immediate; there is no down time.
