Botulinum toxin is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people. It is the only treatment of its type that is FDA approved. One 10-minute treatment-a few tiny injections-and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. (Results may vary.) Dr. Grimes was one of the original investigators for Botox approval, and in addition, published the first paper on the use of Botulinum Toxin in African Americans.
BOTOX relaxes the muscles by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine required for muscle contraction. As you age, you begin to lose collagen and wrinkles become more prominent on your skin. Muscles can constrict and form creases as well as rhytids.
Facial muscles are small, which is why BOTOX is introduced through injection so the desired effectis achieved. The medicine is injected into the specific muscle group to eliminate the rhytids. BOTOX is safe and can provide rejuvenating benefits that will leave behind a younger looking profile.
