BOTOX FAQs

What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medication injected into the muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe wrinkles enhancing a more youthful look. Botox gives you a more rested and relaxed look and actually prevents wrinkles. Both men and women are starting BOTOX even in their 20’s and 30’s to “buy time” against aging. Wrinkles gradually progress with age, stress, and sun exposure. The earlier a person starts using Botox, the more preventative it can be.
