Getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles doesn’t always require surgery. Neuromodulators can erase years off your face with a quick and essentially pain free office procedure. The most commonly known neuromodulator is Botox. Botox is made from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When injected, it relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles.
What Areas can be Treated with Botox?
Botox is optimal for treating horizontal lines on your forehead, frown lines between your eyebrows, dimpling on your chin, bunny lines on your nose, and crow’s feet around your eyes. It can also give you a subtle lift to the eyebrow. The combination of these treatment areas can give you a more rested, youthful appearance. Botox can also be used to treat excessive underarm sweating.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox is the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments. It was first approved by the FDA in 2002, and is now approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. The safety and efficacy of Botox have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
