Botox relaxes the tiny facial muscles that cause expression lines, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled. It is used to treat crow’s feet, frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead.
A doctor’s expertise plays as key role when it comes to identifying the target area and injecting Botox on it. Done carefully, using optimal amount of Botox units, there is no freezing of facial expressions.
Pain or discomfort associated with injection is minimal and can be compared with an ant-bite. Local anaesthetic cream can be used to further reduce this.
A single treatment of BOTOX will normally last for approximately 4 months and eventually there is a gradual fading of its effects.
