How BOTOX Cosmetic Works

Many facial wrinkles are the result of nerve cells that have been conditioned to tell muscles to contract. Because we so often contract muscles in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, the nerves begin telling the muscles to remain contracted. BOTOX blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause. Habitual muscle contractions are blocked, but after a short time the nerve extends new branches to the muscle that allow for voluntary muscle contraction, so you don’t lose expressiveness in treated areas.

The key to successful BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is precise injection into the muscles requiring treatment, which depends on the skill of the Botox injector in Washington, DC. Initially, physicians were reluctant to use BOTOX around the mouth where ‘static’ wrinkles predominate and where injections would be needed so close to muscles that are needed for talking, eating and kissing. However, after more than a decade of experience with BOTOX procedures in Washington, DC, the technique has been perfected to a higher skill level. Tiny BOTOX injections into certain oral muscles can safely prevent the mouth from creasing the skin and forming the deep vertical lines caused by habitual over-pursing. Dr. Alster has extensive experience treating the lower third of the face and neck areas which require a great deal of finesse in technique.
