There are many potential benefits of Botox that you and your loved ones may want to consider when considering cosmetic dermatology solutions. Botox in Basking Ridge, Parlin, and Union, NJ, at Choice Dermatology can help with fine lines and wrinkles and excessive sweating.
What Is Botox?
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is an FDA-approved muscle relaxant used to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions. As a muscle relaxant, Botox can temporarily paralyze the muscles in which it is injected to prevent contraction, or movement, of these muscles. In this way, Botox for cosmetic purposes can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which are affected by the movement of facial muscles below the skin.
