Botulinum Toxin (Botox)
Posted by Admin
Facial fillers and injectables are used to reduce the many signs of the aging face, or correct minor deformities. Botox (cosmetic) is usually used for elimination of wrinkles of the forehead, glabella (between eyebrows), “crows feet”(sides of eyes), under the eyes, and around the mouth. Botox has been found to have many other uses, but here we will discuss only its aesthetic uses. These procedures are temporary and require repeated uses for maintenance. It is important to note that injectable fillers, and Botox, is not meant to repair but temporarily improve. There are many different types. Even permanent ones, but one must be very cautious when using anything permanent as there is a risk of permanent deformity and infection.
