What is Botox Cosmetic and how does Botox Cosmetic work?
Botox Cosmetic is a diluted form of Botulinum Toxin A. It is injected with tiny needles directly into the muscles that contribute to the formation of lines between the eyes (the famous 1’s, 11’s and 111’s), the horizontal forehead lines, the crow’s feet around the eyes, the marionette lines next to the chin, the dimpling of the chin itself, neck bands, lip lines, and any other unwanted contractions. See above for other benefits of Botox cosmetic. It works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine from the nerve endings. The effect lasts 3-4 months. Injection technique and artistry are crucial to getting the desired end results.
