What Is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment designed to address the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead, Crows feet, and Glabella. The Botox® formula is composed of a neuromodulator known as botulinum toxin. This formula, when injected into the forehead, relaxes the muscles that are responsible for contracting and causing wrinkles. As a result, you will notice a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead that grants you a more youthful appearance. It is a quick five-minute procedure with no downtime that can easily be performed during the lunch hour.
Do Botox® injections hurt?
Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is not normally needed. If concerned however, you can request an anesthetic (numbing) cream prior to treatment.
