Botox and Wrinkle Fillers

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription drug made from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Botox temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. When injected into the skin, it acts as a barrier to nerve signals traveling to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. This relaxes and softens facial wrinkles and creases. Botox is most often used to treat forehead and frown lines and crow’s feet.

As with injectable fillers, Botox offers temporary results. Maintenance injections are required every three to twelve months depending on your individual results.

Risks and Rewards:

All procedures carry a small amount of risk, but serious adverse reactions from injectable dermal fillers and Botox are rare. You might experience infection, swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, pain, numbness, rash, itching, skin nodules, abscesses, open sores, blurred vision, flu-like symptoms, or allergic reactions. These side effects are almost always temporary and usually clear up within a week. For the majority of people seeking a more youthful appearance without going under the knife, this is an acceptable risk for a solution that offers immediate results that can last as long as a year. If you don’t believe us, just ask them.
