How Does Botox Work?
Unlike surgery, I perform Botox injections in-office as the procedure takes only a few minutes and does not require anesthesia. I use a thin needle to inject Botox into specific areas of your face to block signals from the nerves to the muscles. Once I inject Botox into the muscle, it cannot contract, making your wrinkles and fine lines relax and soften. Total units used in one Botox treatment may vary from 25 – 70 units per face depending on the facial areas you would like me to treat with Botox, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and glabella. I believe in micro injection techniques for more reliable results.
