WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?
Botox Cosmetic is an injectable wrinkle muscle relaxer. Small doses of Botox (botulinum toxin product typeA) are injected through tiny needles at precise points in your face to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles, the kind that are caused by your everyday facial expressions over time. Moreover, this works by inhibiting the nerve signal that causes muscles to contract, leaving your skin naturally smoother and younger-looking. Botulinum toxin product (Type A).
We mix fresh all our Botox on a daily basis and performed by Dr. Bacha himself. Moreover, Fadi Bacha MD, has been performing Botox treatment for over 17 years.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Botox Cosmetic is injected into muscles, where it blocks nerve impulses to those tissues. Therefore, the muscle activity that causes the frown lines is reduced, and a smoother look results. Moreover, without a contracting muscle beneath it, the skin has a difficult time wrinkling. Facial lines that exist when your face is totally relaxed are not very good candidates. However, Dermal fillers are a better treatment for these lines. Botox can frequently “soften” these lines but not always get rid of them.

Potential Botox side effects include pain at the injection site, infection, inflammation, swelling, redness, bleeding, and bruising. However, some of these symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction; other allergy symptoms include itching, wheezing, asthma, a rash, red welts, dizziness, and faintness.
