It is featured in popular culture time and time again, and the most common injectable beauty procedure in the United states in 2018. BOTOX® smooths wrinkles, softens expressions, and lifts to provide a more youthful appearance.

What Do You Know About BOTOX®?

The most popular neuromodulator BOTOX®, a form of Botulinum Toxin A, has been on the market for more than 15 years as a cosmetic procedure. This treatment is well-known by many and helps thousands of people reach their aesthetic goals each year. The most popular use of this treatment is to reduce facial wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes, and around the eyes. This is done by making small injections of BOTOX® which acts as a muscle relaxant in the targeted areas.

How Does It Work?

BOTOX® is used to treat the lines on your face by injecting it into targeted facial muscles. Muscles constrict when a chemical called acetylcholine is release by the nerves in that area, leading to lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® blocks this chemical signal and lads to smoother skin in the areas treated. The team of highly skilled professionals at Janiga MDs has treated many patients over the years with BOTOX®, leaving them with amazing results.
