Botox® is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostrdium botulinum and is used to treat forehead lines, crow's feet, upper lip lines,
and neck bands. Botox is injected directly into the skin in extremely small doses. Specific muscles that cause frown lines are targeted by the injections. These isolated muscles are paralysed by the Botox, and can no longer contract. The action of frowning is lessened, and frown lines diminish.
Frown lines are caused by the bunching of skin from facial muscle contractions. When we frown, the skin between our eyebrows is gathered into a fold which eventually causes a chronic furrow. This gives our face a frustrated, discouraged, angry look which is distracting to others and a bother to ourselves. Now you can soften and reduce these frown lines without surgery and without scars, by a simple Botox treatment.
The results of Botox treatment start to appear in three to ten days. The treated muscles will gradually regain their action over three to five months. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired results.
