Botox Injections for Wrinkles
Botox treatment is one of the most popular injectable cosmetic treatments that temporarily smoothes moderate to severe lines around the eyes, brows, neck, and forehead. It can also be used to reduce excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). The Botox injection procedure is simple and non-surgical. It takes just minutes, with results gradually taking place over the following 4 to 7 days, and lasting up to four months. When Botox is properly injected by a trained medical professional like Dr. Won and his team, the process is safe, virtually painless, and side effects are extremely rare.
Botox injections reduce wrinkles in several areas of the face. Common treatment areas include forehead lines, crow’s feet, brow lines, and mouth or nose lines. Botox can treat both thin lines and deeper wrinkles, though other treatments may be used in combination depending on the depth.
Botox is a natural, purified protein that paralyzes the muscles reducing facial movement and wrinkles. The active ingredient is botulinum toxin derived from the bacterium in a similar way that penicillin is derived from mold. While this sounds scary – to date – Botox is considered pretty safe for most people. Which is best for you? Dr. Won can help advise what would best for your needs.
