What Is Botox?

Botox is one of many treatment options offered by Innova Aesthetics to address expression lines like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. Through a carefully-administered series of virtually painless injections, certain wrinkles can be effectively smoothed, bringing about a more youthful appearance to the face.

Botox treatments are fast and comfortable, and there are no visible signs of the procedure afterward. Many patients even choose to perform this treatment during their lunch break.

How Botox Works

Botox can effectively target wrinkles that develop due to movement of facial muscles. For example, everyday actions like smiling or frowning can cause creases to develop in the skin over time and result in wrinkles like frown lines (also known as glabellar lines) and crow’s feet.

This is further exacerbated by the depletion of collagen, which can make the creases even more prominent, as the skin loses part of the support structure that helps it bounce back and keeps it elastic.

Botox treatments are focused on reducing the facial muscle movements that are responsible for the wrinkles. The key ingredient in Botox is the Botulinum toxin, which temporarily reduces neurotransmitter activity within the treated area, thereby relaxing the muscle.

With decreased muscle movement, the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles can be significantly reduced.

Botox For Excessive Sweating

Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements. This condition often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and untreated due to a lack of awareness.​
Botox® treatments help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The median duration of response in Botox® patients is approximately 6-7 months.​
​Botox® is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. We will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with Botox® treatment.​
