What Exactly Is Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox)?
In the world of cosmetic surgery and beauty, Botox is a USFDA-approved procedure for treating wrinkles and age lines. For long, it has been the most sought after cosmetic treatment because:
- It is minimally invasive, quick and safe.
- It is not equipment intensive, hence can be done anywhere.
- Patients can see smoothened skin almost immediately after the first day.
- Consistent results can be achieved in 3-4 days.
How Does It Treat Fine Age Lines?
With age, the human skin develops lines and wrinkles due to the constant movement of the underlying muscles. A medically permissible injection of Botox prevents contraction of these underlying muscles, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
