Unlike Juvéderm and other injectable fillers, which smooth away wrinkles by adding volume to your skin, BOTOX® works by blocking acetylcholine – a chemical trigger that makes your facial muscles contract. These muscle contractions are responsible for the formation of fine lines and wrinkles in your face. By blocking the nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract, BOTOX® allows them to relax, resulting in a drastic reduction of deep-set, dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX® is most commonly used to target:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Brow lines
BOTOX® treatment involves a series of small injections that most patients find mild and easy to tolerate. In fact, the average BOTOX® procedure only takes 15 minutes to complete. The simplicity and effectiveness of BOTOX® have made it the single most popular wrinkle reduction treatment nationwide.
