Botox® is the most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure in the US with more than 6 million patients receiving the procedure every year. It is approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, yet there are still misconceptions. Many patients worry that they may look unnatural, or perhaps they won’t be able to make a full range of facial expressions. When performed by trained physicians like Dr. Hélène, the results are safe, natural and effective*.
Botox® is typically used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet at the corners of the eye, and furrows between the eyebrows. The procedure is quick – no more than 15 minutes – and most patients are able to go back to their daily activities immediately.
It works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily relaxing the muscle into which it is injected, eliminating the muscle’s ability to make a wrinkle. During your treatment, Botox® is injected into areas where the muscles repeatedly contract. The muscles are relaxed, making the wrinkles less noticeable.
