What is BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are a type of cosmetic treatment that uses a purified protein to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
The protein, known as botulinum toxin, is injected into the skin with a very fine needle.
It works by blocking nerve signals that cause the muscles in the face to contract, causing the muscles to relax and the skin to smooth out.
BOTOX injections are most commonly used on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes, but they can also be used in other areas of the face and body.
The effects of BOTOX injections typically last several months, and the treatment is typically repeated to maintain the desired results.
BOTOX injections are administered by licensed healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, and dentists.
