Botox® treats what are known as dynamic wrinkles – wrinkles caused by squinting or frowning, both which require muscle contraction. Botox® is injected under the skin to relax these muscles, which helps to soften facial lines and wrinkles (specifically, the creases across the forehead, the frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes). It can also help to diminish vertical lines that form above and below the lip.
Botox® is one of our most popular injectables and is effective for approximately three to four months. It has also been found to be quite successful in treating excessive underarm sweating.
