What Is Botox?


first signs of aging


Every facial expression, when done repetitively or frequently, can leave its mark on our faces. We see more frown lines – those vertical ones between our eyes and those horizontal ones on our foreheads. We may also see lines around the mouth. These are often the first signs of aging we notice.

Botox® Cosmetic is an aesthetic treatment that was originally developed to treat eye spasms and misalignment of the eyes. It was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use to reduce the appearance of fine lines and superficial wrinkles between the eyebrows as well as other lines caused by repeated facial expressions.

It is made from a bacterium and produced by Allergan in injectable doses. These treatments contain a very small amount of highly purified neurotoxin derived from botulism. They are extremely safe and have been used for cosmetic purposes for years. The injections are made into the muscles underneath the face, causing them to relax and inhibiting nerve stimulation. The result is that lines are diminished. Botox in Annapolis is available from Dr. Namita Murthy, an expert facial plastic surgeon, board-certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

Botox and Other Treatments

Although Botox is not a permanent solution, it can be a good alternative to surgical choices. Dr. Murthy will examine your face and skin and discuss the anticipated results of Botox injections. She may discuss other treatments that could be better matched for the improvements you want.

Botox is an excellent solution for smoothing out wrinkles, but it does not tighten the skin. Facelifts, neck lifts, and fat transfer may be better solutions for your concerns. These surgical options also eliminate the need for frequent follow-up treatments. However, for those in their 20s – 40s, Botox may be the ideal choice.
