Botox is an FDA-approved treatment used to temporarily improve the appearance dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines between the brows, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of repeated facial movements such as smiling, squinting and frowning. Botox is injected into the specific facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to form, allowing them to completely relax and soften for 3-4 months on average. Botox is also a preventative treatment. When treatments are done on a regular maintenance schedule, dynamic wrinkles do not form into deeper, harder to treat problem areas.
Botox is also used to treat excessive sweating, with results lasting 6-9 months on average. For more information on this treatment, click here.
