Botox

Clostridium botulinum Type A is transformed into a safe and therapeutic form that we know as Botox. The procedure is quick and simple. Various options exist to numb the area and to minimize discomfort. Then narrow gauge, or tiny needles will be inserted directly into the muscle, and Botox injected. The Botox blocks a chemical called Acetylcholine which normally causes muscle contraction which causes wrinkles.

The Botox 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.

This safe procedure has been used by experts for over 20 years for various medical and cosmetic conditions. However, as with any procedure there can be risks, so it is advised that Botox only be administered by medical professionals.
