Cosmetic Botox refers to using Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, for aesthetic purposes. However, when it is purified, diluted, and used in tiny, controlled doses, it can be used to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines, which we are mostly speicialized in at the best wellness center and medical spa in West Palm Beach, Florida Fl.
The most common use of Botox is to soften the lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines). It works by blocking the nerve signals in the muscles where it’s injected. When those nerve signals are interrupted, the affected muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen. Without the movement of these selected facial muscles, inevitable wrinkles may be reduced, softened, or even removed.
Botox treatments are usually quick and relatively painless. The effects from Botox will last three to six months, at which point the muscle action gradually returns, and the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear. For this reason, people often choose to continue the treatments over time.
