Botox, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin that works to smooth wrinkles, often on the face. These wrinkles can happen from the natural aging process, or from expressions our face tends to make on a daily basis. Botox injections work to block nerve impulses from muscles in the face, which causes them to relax, and soften your wrinkles in the process. To simplify, nerves signal muscles to contract which then create wrinkles and folds on the surface of the skin. Botulinum Toxin A (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) block the signal from the nerves so the muscle does not contract. The blockage is reversible over time and there is NO permanent damage to the nerve endings and muscles do not degrade. Once the injection is done the duration of actions is from 3-6 months then the procedure can be repeated.
Besides using in Cosmetic Medicine BTX-A has been used for medical indications such as in Cervical Dystonia, upper limb spasticity, blepharospasms, tics and spasticity, strabismus, hyperhidrosis, achalasia, migraine, urinary incontinence, Bells palsy, etc.
Botox is often used on the face for both men and women, and can give a natural looking and youthful appearance. Common areas for injections include the frown lines, wrinkles around the eyes, forehead creases, the corners of the mouth, and chin. Our Botox professionals at Laser Duet Med Spa can help you to decide where on your face injections are needed. Botox and similar injections (Botulinum Toxin A or BTX-A) are essentially FDA approved “wrinkle busters” and it is the most common cosmetic procedure in the U.S. It can be used to create a youthful, relaxed and rejuvenated look. It can be injected in the forehead, glabellar complex, crow’s feet, Nasalis “bunny lines”, upper lip lines, masseters, platysma, etc.
As with most injections, Botox can be painful for some patients who are sensitive. However, most patients do not report any pain with the Botox injection treatment other than some slight discomfort. At Laser Duet Med Spa, we offer the option of numbing if necessary.
