Botox® is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments to address signs of aging. Over time your muscles produce furrows and deep lines on your skin around the eyes, mouth, eyebrows, and forehead. Botox® targets the problematic muscles to reduce contractions and improve dynamic lines and wrinkles.
The History of Botox®
Botox®, originally called Oculinum, was used to treat an eye condition called strabismus. Dr. Brin injected Oculinum to help with treatments as temporary assistance to his patients.
Through research, Dr. Brin discovered further uses in treating muscle spasms. While administering treatments, patients began reporting reduced lines and wrinkles around areas of the face that were treated.
In 1992, Allergen remarketed Oculinum as Botox® for cosmetic purposes. In 2002, the FDA approved Botox® to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows). As Botox® became more popular, the FDA approved its use for crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Over the years, Botox® dosages were adjusted to minimize wrinkles without freezing the face. Each unit is minute in its dosage–less than a gram of the purified protein is enough for a year-long supply for the world’s medical and cosmetic treatments.
What is Botox® Made Of?
Botox® is one of seven protein strains from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. The non-brand name of Botox® is botulinum toxin A. The purified protein refined from the bacterium blocks nerve signals from the problematic muscles to soften wrinkles for up to four months.
What Can Botox® Cosmetic Treatments Do For Me?
Botox® is a safe and effective treatment to reduce facial lines and wrinkles with no downtime and little to no discomfort. The temporary effect allows you to customize your treatment or stop if you dislike your results.
A series of tiny injections rejuvenates crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines around the mouth, horizontal lines along the forehead, and lines on the neck. Botox® also may be used to improve migraine headaches, excessive sweating, chronic back pain, jaw pain, and muscle spasms.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
Your cost of treatment depends on your individual needs and the specialization of your provider. If you require more treatment areas, your provider needs more units of Botox® per treatment, which will increase the price by around $10-15 per unit. More well-trained providers cost more since they have a more extensive clientele.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® Cosmetic Treatments?
