The first signs of aging are often wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, cheeks, and lips. Wrinkles are a normal feature of the human face, but many people feel wrinkles make them look tired or older. Botox is a way to diminish, prevent or eliminate wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin is produced by a specific type of bacteria. In higher amounts it can be poisonous. However, only small, weaker doses of botulinum toxin are used to reduce facial wrinkles. When botulinum toxin is injected, it blocks certain nerve signals that make muscles contract. The muscles relax, reducing unwanted wrinkles. This effect lasts about 3-6 months. After that, the muscles move again and wrinkles come back. When you have botulinum toxin injected, Dr. Krassin may first rub an anesthetic cream on the area to numb it. Then he or she will inject the medicine into specific facial muscles. This only takes a few minutes, and can be done right in the doctor’s office. Right after your cosmetic treatment, you will be able to continue your daily activities right afterwards.
