    Botox Cosmetic is a substance that blocks the release of a chemical that causes face muscles to contract. Certain lines and wrinkles that appear on the face are due to the repeated contraction of face muscles. As the skin becomes less elastic with age, the skin folds result in stubborn lines. During treatment with Botox Cosmetic, small amounts of the substance are injected into the muscles that cause the face muscles to contract, thereby relaxing the muscles. This makes the face lines soften or disappear. The effects are very localized and do not impair your ability to smile or show expression. Please call our office to learn more about Botox Cosmetic and to see if it is right for you.
