Botox Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions. Treatment of BOTOX® Cosmetic can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to essentially disappear. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a formulation of botulinum toxin type A. It is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium produces a protein that blocks the release of acetylcholine to relax muscles. Type A is just one of seven different types of botulinum toxin.

The way it works is your brain sends electrochemical messages to your muscles to make them contract and move. These messages are transmitted from a nerve to the muscle by a substance called acetylcholine. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerve from releasing acetylcholine. As a result, the muscle spasms stop or are greatly reduced, providing relief from symptoms.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in small doses directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows to form, allowing that area to smooth out. It will not affect your ability to laugh, smile or otherwise express yourself.

A common misconception is that Botox actually paralyzes the muscles in the face. Although this can happen with extreme amounts of Botox, Dr. Lolachi strives to inject just the amount that allows the patient to have some limited activity but not so much that they have overactivity of the areas.

Patients should know that Botox is not used to keep them from expressing themselves, but simply to keep them from making facial grimaces and frowns that have become habits and are unintended. When done correctly, most people who are not trained cosmetic physicians will not notice that a Botox procedure has been performed but simply that the patient looks more rested or happier.
