What is a neurotoxin?
- Botulinum neurotoxin is an FDA-approved prescription treatment that is administered via intramuscular injection. It causes a localized reduction in muscle activity causing improved appearance of facial wrinkles, creases and folds.
- Common signs of facial aging include wrinkles, creases and lines. While these are typical aspects of the aging process, many people may feel self-conscious about looking older. BOTOX® is a popular treatment for patients looking to soften facial wrinkles and other signs of aging.
- BOTOX®is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments that doesn’t require anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period. Physicians can place BOTOX® injections into specific muscles to precisely target the cause of wrinkles. Because BOTOX® is a non-surgical treatment, most patients can return to work or daily activities almost immediately.
