WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?botox and fillers

Botox has been a household name for years. This neuromodulator is a specialized injection used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. Botox Cosmetic is injected directly into the facial muscles that contract and cause the formation of wrinkles. The most common dynamic wrinkles found on the face include:

  • The glabellar lines between the eyebrows
  • Forehead folds and wrinkles
  • Wrinkles around the eyes, known as “crow’s feet.”

When Botox Cosmetic is injected into the muscles of the face, it can reduce contractions. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds known to contribute to an aged appearance. With just one appointment, many men and women can turn back time, erasing years off of their appearance and slowing the otherwise unstoppable signs of aging.

Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads find that patients in the communities of Virginia have a wide selection of services available to them when it comes to addressing the signs of aging.
