What is a BOTOX® Treatment?
Updated: Jul 11, 2021
BOTOX® is an injectable wrinkle muscle relaxer. BOTOX® is a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum and it temporarily paralyzes the muscle. BOTOX® can reduce the appearance of facial lines, frown lines, forehead lines, and wrinkles.
While BOTOX® limits localized muscle movement, it does not completely stop all movement in the areas where it is injected. It will soften lines and reduce deep wrinkles, while still allowing natural expressions to occur.
Preparing for BOTOX® Cosmetic
At Secret Faces when you receive a complimentary consultation, we first assess your area of concern. We make sure that the BOTOX® Injection treatment is suitable and safe for you based on your medical history and goals. We then strategically point out the treatable areas and begin the injections.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® contains purified bacteria that stops the muscle from contracting for a period of time aiding in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
A topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area if you are concerned about any discomfort
The effects of BOTOX® lasts an average of up to 4 months.
