These days, BOTOX® is a household name because of its reputation for excellent results and simple, convenient treatments. This anti-aging cosmetic injectable works by reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services.
What is BOTOX made of?
BOTOX is made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. It is administered directly into the targeted facial areas as an injection to relax the muscles and smooth the skin.
Is BOTOX a toxin?
BOTOX is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria. Although BOTOX is a toxin, there are no systemic side effects. This is because, for the treatment described, it is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body.
What are the most requested places for BOTOX?
BOTOX injections help with reducing the rhytides (wrinkles) between the eyes, forehead, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). It can also be used to soften lines around the mouth. There are other uses, but these are the most popular.
Does BOTOX go well with other treatments?
A combination of BOTOX and fillers achieve the best results when combined with aesthetic services such as Matrix RF™ or microneedling for fine lines, wrinkles, texture and pore improvement, and medical-grade skincare products. A good skincare regimen should be the root of any aesthetic goal and sets the tone for every other aesthetic procedure performed.
