Do you get wrinkles between your brows when you frown or crow’s feet when you smile? These expression lines form where your facial muscles crease and wrinkle your skin. Botox® relaxes these facial muscles so your skin looks smooth and de-stressed. It can even keep muscles relaxed to prevent lines from forming.
Botox® is an injectable form of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. This compound works in tiny doses to target muscles that cause expression lines and wrinkles. Botox® works on the nerves that cause facial muscles to contract. It temporarily interrupts nerve and muscle communication, halting the muscle contractions. Without the effects of muscle tension and activity, your lines and wrinkles can relax.

At Manhattan Aesthetics, we love Botox® for many reasons, and so do many of our guests. This widely used, popular treatment is one of the easiest, most effective ways to look more youthful and relaxed.
Botox® has been FDA-approved for aesthetic uses since 2002, but its medical uses go back even further. Botox® has been the subject of numerous research studies demonstrating its safety. While the name “botulinum toxin” may sound alarming, this compound does not harm your nerves or muscles, and the effect disappears when it wears off.
You may be aware of the most common aesthetic uses for Botox®, including between the brows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. However, it can treat lines, wrinkles, and other concerns all over the face and neck. Botox® also has many medical uses, including migraines and eye muscle conditions.
You can return to your daily activities after Botox® without downtime. Some people experience minor bruising, bleeding, or swelling in the treatment area, but these usually resolve within a day or two. You can get Botox® in the middle of a workday and return to your activities without delay.
With your experienced Manhattan Aesthetics injector, your Botox® results will look relaxed and natural. When properly injected, Botox® produces results that look like you but younger and less stressed. Having Botox® at a reputable facility is essential to achieving your desired results.
You most likely know that Botox® can smooth lines and wrinkles, but it also prevents them. This process, sometimes called “Baby Botox®,” treats the earliest signs of skin creasing to prevent lines from developing. Preventing these wrinkles has effects that can last many years into the future of your skin.
