For the past decade, the most popular non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure in the U.S has remained Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botox® is one of the popular brand names for Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botox® is a neuromuscular-blocking, injectable prescription drug which essentially means that it stops the transmission of chemicals that tell the muscles to move.
Wherever Botox® is injected in the body it paralyzes the muscles underneath the skin thereby interfering with the nerve stimulation of the muscle that causes excess facial expressions. When the muscle relaxes, the line diminishes. Botox® injections take only 20 minutes to perform and safely reduce wrinkles by 80%. The treatment gives patients a more youthful, refreshed, facial appearance without requiring any post-treatment downtime.
