Maintaining a youthful appearance is a challenge that only gets harder with time. Whenever we squint, frown or smile, we create folds in our skin. These continuous folds eventually carve out deeper and deeper wrinkles. Botox is a non-surgical injectable solution that reverses the appearance of wrinkles while preventing new ones from developing.

The effectiveness of Botox is hard to deny at this point. And now, thanks to its convenience, affordability and lasting effects, Botox is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure on the market today. Derived from a protein found in a bacterium, Botox functions as a neuromuscular inhibitor that blocks nerve impulses to targeted muscles. This calms the articulation of the facial expression and prevents folding of the skin.

The injection process usually takes less than 15 minutes and can remain effective for about three months at a time.
