Botox® is the world’s most popular medical beauty treatment. Botox® is a purified version of nature’s Botulinum toxin that has the unique property of blocking muscle contraction.
Although called a toxin, Botox® is entirely safe and in small amounts can stop the excessive muscle contractions that cause lines around the eyes, forehead and nose. The result is a natural reduction in wrinkles. Botox is often used as a treatment to:
- Soften a square jawline
- Reduce excessive sweating from the armpits, hands, or feet
- Reduce frequency of chronic migraines
- Reduce excessively large calf muscles for those who love high heels
With minimal discomfort, Botox® normally only takes about 20 minutes while the results can last 3-4 months. The results will depend on how your body reacts to Botox®, how well you maintain patient upkeep, and other environmental factors. It may be appropriate to have a touch-up injection to maintain your results.
