What is Botox and what are the indications?
Botox Cosmetic (ontabotulinumtoxin A) is an injectable that paralyzes or relaxes the muscles of the facial expression. Botox Cosmetic works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a molecule responsible for muscle contraction. This will give a temporary improvement to the wrinkles of moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead lines in adults.
How long will Botox last?
Botox can last 4-6 months or even longer depending on the individual.
Are the injections painful?
Patients report that being injected with Botox Cosmetics feels like a pinch.
