Botox is a cosmetic treatment that is used to counter wrinkles and other unwanted lines on the face. If you’re interested in enhancing your appearance with the help of this minimally-invasive procedure, we invite you to turn to our team here at PA Vascular Institute.

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet lines in adults. The type of medication used for Botox causes muscles in the face to relax, which results in smoother and more youthful-looking skin. Results can often be seen in just a few days and will last up to several months.

How Does This Treatment Work?

This cosmetic treatment works beneath the surface of the skin and targets the muscle activity that causes crow’s feet and frown lines, which are caused by repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. The actual process typically only takes about 10 minutes to complete, and you may begin to notice the results of Botox within 24 to 48 hours after the prescription medicine is injected into the muscles.

Botox has a variety of benefits. They include:

  • The treatment is minimally-invasive.
  • Injections usually only take a few minutes.
  • It has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • The results are recovery-free.
