What is Botox made of and how does it work?

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see wrinkles on your face? Do you feel as if these wrinkles make you look more tired? Do you think you look older because of the wrinkles?

Instead of feeling as if you have to live with and deal with the wrinkles on your face, know your options when it comes to cosmetic procedures that can assist you in turning back the hands of time. Botox is a common dermatological procedure that allows you to do just that!

Botox is a prescription medication that is made with a neurotoxin protein. This protein, when injected into certain areas of the face, helps block certain muscles from contracting. By doing so, an individual will have softened the wrinkles on their face and will keep the muscles from causing further wrinkles to develop. If you don't fold a piece of paper, there won't be a crease--same goes for the skin on your face. When the nerve impulses of certain muscles on the face are blocked, then wrinkles cannot form in the areas where the muscle used to contract. Blocking the muscle activity can reverse the effect that they once had on your skin.

Botox is a quick and simple outpatient procedure at Dr. Vitulli's office in Jupiter. A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery offers Botox to patients that are dissatisfied with the lines and wrinkles on their face and want to be confident and proud of their appearance. One treatment of Botox will last approximately six months, and will require continued treatments for upkeep.

Considering making a change for the better? Want to eliminate the deep lines and wrinkles from your face? Botox might be right for you! Call Dr. Vitulli today to schedule a consultation and find out what Botox can do to help you restore your natural beauty!
