WHAT IS BOTOX?
BOTOX is an approved prescription medication that is applied through a single, or series, of injections at a given treatment site. Most often, BOTOX is utilized to aid in the reduction of wrinkles or crow’s feet around the eyes, brows, and forehead; however, we can utilize BOTOX for migraines, as well.
BOTOX works by reducing muscle activity in those areas that are most often affected by repeated contractions over the course of time. Eyes, forehead, and brows are where we see the results of these muscle contractions as they are the regions of the face that work to display many of our daily emotions and expressions. As BOTOX is injected, it temporarily reduces the muscle activity in those treatment sites, resulting in a visible smoothing and reduction in crow’s feet and frown lines on your brows and forehead.
