Botox Injections in Miami, Florida at Very Affordable Price and Best Results
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX ® is also injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough in people 18 years and older.
The BOTOX ® procedure takes only a few minutes. No anesthesia is used, nor is any required. Generally, people feel minor discomfort at most.
How does BOTOX ® Work?
BOTOX ® works by blocking the acetylcholine receptors on the muscle side of the injection. Then when the nerve sends a signal to the muscle to contract, acetylcholine is released as before, but it can’t bind anywhere on the muscle.
This acetylcholine blockade is not reversible and begins within 48 hours. The clinical effects of BOTOX ® injection become noticeable between 5-10 days. Over the next 3-5 months the muscle gradually develops new receptor sites and is able to contract again.
