Botox Injections for Wrinkles

You keep hearing about it. Botox, botulinum. Botox enables patients to look years younger in minutes. This is because a Botox injection minimizes the appearances of wrinkles.

Botox injections reduce wrinkles in several areas of the face. Common treatment areas include forehead lines, crow’s feet, brow lines, and mouth or nose lines. Botox can treat both thin lines and deeper wrinkles, though other treatments may be used in combination depending on the depth.

Botox is a natural, purified protein that paralyzes the muscles reducing facial movement and wrinkles. The active ingredient is botulinum toxin derived from the bacterium in a similar way that penicillin is derived from mold. While this sounds scary – to date – Botox is considered pretty safe for most people. Which is best for you? Dr. Won can help advise what would best for your needs.
