Since its U.S. debut as a non-surgical option just over a decade ago, Botox Cosmetic has been on fire, becoming the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in this country. Last year alone, botulinum toxin injections (which account for both Dysport and Botox) totaled over six million procedures in the United States.

Botox is a botulinum toxin injectable designed to serve cosmetic purposes. The chemical is injected into the muscles of the face in order to decrease the appearance and development of wrinkles.

Habitual facial expressions such as smiling, frowning and furrowing eyebrows create the lines of aging. Botox Cosmetic intercepts nerve signals of the targeted muscles, thus limiting the amount of activity. This helps to reduce the effect of wrinkling and lines over time.

The qualified practitioners at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton can explain to you in detail how Botox Cosmetic can help you reduce the signs of aging in a quick, convenient way that typically lasts up to four months. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
