BOTOX® 101: A Comprehensive Guide for First-Time Patients

Starting your journey towards a more youthful and refreshed appearance often begins with exploring the benefits of BOTOX®. At COSMEDOCTOR in Woodbury, NY, we understand that taking the first step towards any aesthetic treatment can be daunting. That’s why we’re here to guide you through everything you need to know about BOTOX® before your first treatment.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a purified form of botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance that temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. It’s widely used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).

How Does BOTOX® Work?

When injected into targeted facial muscles, BOTOX® blocks the nerve signals that cause these muscles to contract. By preventing these contractions, BOTOX® smooths out existing wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming, resulting in a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
