About BOTOX®

BOTOX® is a simple, nonsurgical procedure that has a variety of therapeutic and naturally cosmetic benefits. It is essentially a purified protein that works to reduce the activity of the surrounding muscles in which it is injected. FDA approved BOTOX® injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect.
