Botulinum toxin is a protein that causes paralysis when injected into the body. This protein is produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The toxin is also called botulinum toxin type A, as well as Botox® or Dysport®. Riverside Botox injected into muscles temporarily weakens them, causing them to relax and become temporarily paralyzed. It treats conditions such as excessive underarm sweating and facial wrinkles.
How does it work?
Botox works by blocking nerve signals from reaching your brain. This causes temporary muscle paralysis lasting between three and four months. When injected into the face, Botox prevents the excessive formation of certain muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows (glabellar lines). It also relaxes muscles responsible for wrinkling around your eyes (crow’s feet).
What are the benefits of Botox treatment?
Control facial wrinkles
Botox injections can help control the appearance of deep wrinkles on your face by relaxing specific muscles that cause them to form. These include crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines between your eyebrows, and forehead furrows caused by raising your eyebrows. Injecting Botox under the skin reduces the activity of these muscles, which causes them to relax and prevents wrinkles from forming as quickly or deeply as they otherwise would have. The effects typically last three to six months before needing another injection appointment.
Reduce forehead lines
Frown lines between your eyebrows (often referred to as glabella lines) can be treated with Botox injections into the muscle that causes them to form (the corrugator supercilii). By relaxing this muscle, the frown lines between your eyebrows will become less noticeable or disappear altogether for up to five months after treatment.
Enhance natural beauty
Botox works by relaxing facial muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet. It also reduces the appearance of lines around the nose, mouth, and forehead by smoothing out wrinkles.
Improve muscle tone and contour
Botox can be used to improve muscle tone and contour in the face by weakening certain muscles that cause wrinkles. This is often done by combining botulinum toxin type A (Botox) and filler injections together. For example, we may use Botox to weaken the mouth’s muscles, allowing us to fill out areas like cheeks or lips with filler for more natural results.
Remove visible aging signs
Botox injections can help you get rid of those lines and wrinkles in your face that make you look older than you actually are. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles in your face, making it impossible for them to contract or move as much as they used to when you were younger. This leads to smoother skin and fewer wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth, or forehead area where Botox injections are commonly applied.
Better skin hydration and plumping effect on facial skin
The injection contains a small amount of purified Botulinum toxin type A, which relaxes overactive muscles beneath the skin surface, causing temporary paralysis, improving the appearance by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and creases on the surface of your skin for up to 4 months.
Botox is a popular treatment for both men and women who want to look younger and more relaxed. The treatment can be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles, as well as provide a more natural-looking appearance. Botox is injected into areas of the face that cause wrinkles and lines. The toxin relaxes the muscles that cause these lines, allowing them to soften naturally over time. The effect is similar to an intense workout, causing muscles to relax and become less tense.
