Botulinmum toxin (Botox), is one of the top five non surgical cosmetic procedures in the US. Botox blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine which triggers muscle contraction which causes wrinkles. The results provided by Botox will last three to six months - as muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again.
The procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and requires no numbing agent. Post treatment you will need to remain upright and avoid exercise, bending over, lying flat or rubbing injected area for about 4 hours.
