Have you have ever wondered how BOTOX® Cosmetic achieves such incredible results, and is sought after by millions worldwide? You may be surprised to learn that BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified muscle antagonist derived from Botulinum toxin, which is a protein and neurotoxin produced by microorganisms. It is easily absorbed into the skin and, when injected by Dr. Fata, BOTOX® Cosmetic causes a weakening of only the portion of the muscle that has been injected. This results in a relaxation of the muscle and a softening of the associated wrinkle for about 3 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic in Practice
Since the 1950s, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have been utilized to temporarily relax muscles around the eyes for conditions of uncontrolled muscle spasm. By targeting specific muscle groups, Dr. Fata can trigger a release of tension, allowing wrinkles to soften and, in some cases, become entirely invisible for the duration of the BOTOX® Cosmetic reaction.
To maintain the youthful appearance that BOTOX® Cosmetic creates, regular treatments are necessary. As your laugh lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines return, you will want to consult with Dr. Fata to have more injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic does not reverse the aging process, but it effectively counteracts the effects of aging cosmetically, and is a quick procedure that requires no recovery time.
