Understanding Botox Treatment
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin is commonly used to reduce or eliminate facial fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals that make muscles contract as a result, the targeted muscles relax and the wrinkles caused by those muscles are diminished or eliminated. Most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, lip lines, gummy smiles, etc.
