How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine. When injected into a muscle it blocks the muscular nerve signals so that the muscle can’t contract and show wrinkles. This temporarily improves the appearance of facial areas like the forehead, eyes, mouth and neck.

When the facial muscles contract repeatedly for many years – during a frown, smile or squint – it can cause wrinkles or lines to form. Botox injections treat such lines and wrinkles by going deep into the muscle and reducing the activity. Instantly BOTOX® treatment shows visibly smoother results to the following areas:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Skin bands on the neck

What Causes Wrinkles?

Many lifestyle factors contribute to wrinkle formation. While some of the known factors do contribute to wrinkles – such as collagen reduction, free radical harm, or the changing cells from aging. Other factors include daily activity such as deep concentration or frowning which cause the muscles in between the eyebrows to contract and stretch out. The same thing happens when you squint; the muscles around your eyes contract regularly leaving behind what we call crow’s feet.

What Will BOTOX® Do?

BOTOX® reaches the muscles deep beneath the skin’s surface to minimize the activity. The end result is a lower ability for your skin to form lines or wrinkles.

BOTOX® Treatment for the Crow’s Feet Area

Dr. Perez-Soto injects BOTOX® into 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of each eye. The result is nearly instantaneous reduction in the appearance of lines.

BOTOX® Treatment For the frown lines area

Dr. Perez-Soto injects 5 injections of BOTOX® into the forehead muscles to reach the procerus muscle and the corrugator muscles. The result is a significant decrease in the appearance of frown lines.
