Neuromodulators including Botox are the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in North America, over 8 million treatments in 2019 alone.
Botox is an extremely effective treatment for reducing wrinkles specifically around the eyes, forehead and nose. Repetitive contraction of facial muscles leads to lines knows as dynamic wrinkles. A small amount of neuromodulator is injected precisely into the muscles that cause these wrinkles, leading to muscle relaxation and a reduction in the appearance of lines. The treatment only relaxes the muscles in the area of injection, so the other elements of facial expression remain active, leaving a natural appearance. The overall result is a younger, more relaxed-looking appearance with zero downtime.
