Cosmetic Botulinum Toxin A or Bo-Tox Injections
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It's not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow's feet. Botulinum toxin A works to prevent wrinkles by specifically targeting the facial muscle to cause prolonged but temporary paralysis. The amount necessary will vary and will be discussed and agreed upon prior to injection. Average amount for glabellar (between the eyebrows or "11s" ), crows feet, and forehead range from 24 units to 40 units.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). It's commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look.
