What is Botox (Botulinum Toxin)?

Cynthia Before and After Botox

As American adults live longer and fuller lives than ever before, there might be a struggle to make your outer appearance look as young as you feel. If you’re looking to change your body so it mirrors your youthful mind and heart, Botox could be the solution for you. Botox is a botulinum toxin that is one of the most innovative and important substances to ever enter the facial rejuvenation field.

Botox is the most popular non-surgical way to reduce facial wrinkles and smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead furrows and skin bands on the neck. Any facial movement, including smiling, frowning, squinting and chewing, can over time create wrinkles. Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of aging, and one of the quickest and safest ways to remove them is with an injection of Botox.

The word “toxin” can be a little off-putting for some, but Botox types A and B are both derived from a bacteria and then purified. Injections of the substance block muscular nerve signals, which in turn weaken the muscle. This makes the muscle unable to contract, which diminishes those unwanted facial wrinkles.

In addition, Botox can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures to further beautify your skin. Procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers or microdermabrasions can provide the skin therapy needed to help prevent the formation of even more fine lines and wrinkles.
