Many people find that the passage of years leaves traces of wrinkles on their faces. Laugh lines, scowl lines, depressions around the mouth and nose and other imperfections can cause you to look older than you are. Acting as a paralytic, Botox treatment prevents deeper wrinkles from developing and may soften or erase those wrinkles that have already formed.
What is Botox?
Botox is a botulinum type A, similar to Dysport, which is widely used to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, forehead, and mouth. Many people do not know that it is made from the bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is the same toxin that causes food poisoning – as in botulism – but it can also be used medically for a variety of conditions. As for cosmetic enhancements, it is injected into muscles in the face to create a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How Botox Treatment Works
An experienced plastic surgeon can use Botox injections to raise the eyebrows slightly, remove crinkly lines on the nose, soften laugh lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), and smoothen furrows in the forehead, as well as any other wrinkle-filled areas.
Generally, a numbing cream or injection is applied to the area before treatment. Small amounts of Botox are then injected under the skin. You can immediately resume your normal activities after the treatment.
Botox is an in-office procedure performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Cara R. Downey in Houston, Texas.

As with all injections, there may be some side effects. First off, do not take Botox if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. You may ask your plastic surgeon if you’re not quite sure.
