Botox is an injectable treatment derived from purified protein. It targets “dynamic” wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscle contractions and works by relaxing these muscle contractions, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. A Botox treatment is quick and simple, with no downtime. After meeting with your physician to determine your desired outcome, the procedure itself takes only 10 to 15 minutes. A tiny amount of Botox is injected with a fine needle into the muscles being treated, a virtually painless process.
