Botox is formulated from a carefully controlled and minute volume of Clostridium botulinum, a substance found naturally in soil, lakes, and forests. A neurotoxin, this substance works to alter the way your muscle tissue functions.
Botox is injected into certain facial muscles to prevent them from going through their full range of motion. It’s an excellent way to reduce lines, folds, and wrinkles around your eyes (crow’s feet), between your brows, and across your forehead.
Injections take just moments to complete, and the effects develop within a day or two. Your results will last around four months, at which time you can decide if you’d like to return for another treatment.
Botox has an extensive safety record and has been used in medical applications for more than 50 years. The team at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic has the skills and experience needed to leverage this powerful tool to help you look your very best. Dysport® is a similar injectable medication that smooths lines and wrinkles. Your provider can discuss which option is best for you.
