What Is Botox?
Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a liquid that's injected just below the skin to “freeze” muscles, effectively smoothing out wrinkles and lines in the face. The substance prevents the release of the chemical that causes the muscles to move—they just relax instead. Your doctor will inject Botox in the areas of concern (usually the forehead, around the mouth and around the eyes) to ensure the best results. It’s an FDA approved cosmetic treatment that’s a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery of the face.
Patients like Botox because it works relatively quickly and the appointment is fast. After you leave the office, it takes just a few days to see the full effects. When administered by a qualified practitioner at Visione 360 Eye & Cosmetic Institute in El Paso, the reduction in lines and wrinkles looks natural and you can still make your usual expressions.
