What is Botox?
Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. When you start to experience the signs of aging, Botox® is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox® is a neuromodulator that blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. Botox® essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results from Botox® are visible within two to seven days with results that can last anywhere from three to four months.
Botox® cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:
- Frown Lines
- Forehead Wrinkles
- Crows Feet (Smile Lines)
- Jaw Line Shaping and Masseter Muscle Relaxation
Botox can also be used to treat:
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in hands and underarms)
Generally, anyone in good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox® treatments.
Calgary BotoxMost patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Botox® treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
