What is Botox?
Botox is the #1 cosmetic treatment worldwide. It’s safe, quick, minimally invasive, and delivers amazing results. One 15 minute session can take years off your face. Botox treatment works by relaxing the muscles that tend to furrow or tighten when you make certain facial frown, laugh, or smile. Those expressions repeatedly fold your skin over time. Eventually, they turn into full-blown creases. Tiny injections of Botox can temporarily smooth away unwanted lines and wrinkles.

How Long Does It Take Botox To Work?
When Botox is injected into specific muscles in your body, it blocks the release of acetylcholine resulting in local muscle paralysis. The effect usually occurs 24 hours to 2 weeks after Botox injection. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.
How Often Do I Need Botox Treatments?
To prolong the effects of Botox from six months to one year, the treatment should be repeated for one year or more, no more than 3 to 4 times per year for each area.
Does Insurance Pay For Botox?
Botox is used for a variety of cosmetic & medical indications. Botox for medical use may be covered by your insurance provider; you will need to check with your carrier.
