BOTOX has revolutionized how plastic surgeons keep patients looking younger for longer without the need for surgery. BOTOX is most commonly used to remove wrinkles located on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. It is meant to slow down the aging process and prevent the break-down of facial collagen. BOTOX was FDA approved in 2002 to be most commonly used for what patients fondly refer to as either the “11s” or “angry lines”. Prior to 2002 however, BOTOX was used in more “legitimate” medicine to treat muscles spasms. To this day, BOTOX is actually used more in medicine than in cosmetic treatments.
How Does Botox Take Away My Wrinkles?
BOTOX is a neuromodulator which temporarily prevents affected muscles from contracting. The forehead lines, glabellar 11’s and the crow’s feet lines are all caused by hyperactive muscle action in the face of loose skin that results from loss of facial volume and the breakdown of tissue collagen. By temporarily preventing these muscles from contracting, the muscle is unable to cause the crease; and the crease will if it is not too ingrained, soften and then disappear. Dr. Chang and our expert nurse injectors are ranked in the top 1% of all medical offices in the country by Allergan, the manufacturer of BOTOX.
