Botox is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. It is FDA approved, safe and effective since 2002. Botox is a muscle relaxer which helps to visibly soften moderate to severe wrinkles. This product works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes horizontal forehead lines, the vertical “11’s” lines between the eyebrows, crows feet around eyes, lip lines, chin dimpling, neck lines, etc. Injecting Botox into the muscles that causes wrinkles results in temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles and reduction in the appearance of those lines!
The product is administered in “units”. A unit is a measurement used to determine the amount of Botox needed and given, for example, some treatment areas need only 5 units while others may use 30 units!”
