Facial enhancement using BOTOX® injection to make skin appear smoother and more youthful is one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. since it was given FDA approval in 2002 for cosmetic benefits. It is a potent purified protein serum in the form of a prescription drug that is injected into particular facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and moderate to severe lines on a temporary basis.
For people who want to improve the texture of their skin, using a treatment that can rejuvenate their looks without a need for surgery or recovery time, BOTOX® injection is the unsurpassed solution. The popularity of this wonder drug is increasing every day; since its FDA approval, over 10 million vials have been sold. There are several reasons for this treatment’s incomparable popularity, but the principal reason is that it consistently delivers what it promises. On top of that, it involves no surgery, minimal downtime, doesn’t take much time to administer (an average of 20 minutes per session), and it can be repeated more than once a year, producing and maintaining the same remarkable results.
BOTOX® treatments entail injecting an extremely minute concentration of purified protein serum into specific facial muscles. After infusion into the muscles, the serum limits muscular movement by temporarily paralyzing them, which promotes the softening and smoothing of fine to severe lines and wrinkles. It manages this by preventing the relaying of signals from the nerve cells to the muscles that cause contractions. The protein serum blocks the abnormal muscle contractions, so the muscles relax, which contributes to surface facial smoothness. Common areas of application include the forehead, eyebrows, mouth, eye area, and chin.
The surface facial skin will return to its original appearance in approximately four months after application. BOTOX® injection is safe for muscles to repeatedly receive these injections to sustain the smoothed and youthful appearance.
