What Is Botox?

Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure for its nonsurgical, easy treatments that provide the quality results people are looking for. Botulinum toxin-or botox for short- is the name for the substance injected into your skin to prevent muscles from contracting, allowing them to temporarily relax.

What Is Botox Used For?

Botox is commonly used to reduce and rid the appearance of wrinkles and other unwanted facial creases. It is also often used to treat repetitive neck spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and lazy eye. At The Ferguson Clinic, our clients often use botox to treat the following:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes
  • Forehead furrows

Schedule a consultation today to see how botox can help rid your face of unwanted lines and wrinkles, leaving you with radiant, youthful-looking skin.

What Happens During a Botox Procedure?

As mentioned before, botox help the muscles relax by being administered via injection. While most of our clients tolerate the injections well, our doctors make your comfort their top priority. We can use various methods to help you relax and feel comfortable during your procedure including topical anesthesia or ice and vibration anesthesia. After the procedure, you can expect to go about your day as there is no recovery time needed!
