BOTOX® is a form of botulinum toxin, a purified neurotoxin derived from clostridium botulinum bacteria that temporarily relaxes muscle movement and eliminates facial wrinkles.
How Does Botox Work?
Are you bothered by the fine lines, wrinkles, and creases on your forehead or around your eyes? Commonly called dynamic lines, these skin issues appear due to continuous facial expressions, such as squinting, smiling, and frowning. As we age, these wrinkles remain and make us appear less youthful. At VIVIFY Medspa, we use BOTOX® Cosmetic by Allergan, an injectable wrinkle relaxer that temporarily minimizes the appearance of moderate to severe forehead creases, crow's feet, and frown lines. BOTOX® and Jeuveau utilize a clean type A strain of botulinum toxin. The relaxer works to temporarily "freeze" the muscles that cause those contractions, allowing the overlying skin to smooth itself over time. This non-surgical solution helps patients obtain a smoother, renewed appearance. BOTOX® and other neuromodulators can prevent static lines from forming over time.
