Botox is a safe, non-invasive injectable compound which works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for our most frequent facial contractions, such as smiling, squinting, frowning or yawning. It’s great for reversing age-related fine lines, wrinkles, creases, furrows and folds. The results of Botox typically appear 7 to 10 days after treatment and last between 3 – 6 months.
For more subtle results, such as improving skin texture and reducing pore size, botox can be applied by using a technique called microtox.
In addition, Botox can also prevent excessive underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis). By temporarily blocking the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for "turning on" the body's sweat glands, botulinum toxin "turns off" sweating at the area where it has been injected. Results are typically 3-6 months.
