Reasons People Turn to Botox
Many individuals decide to get Botox treatments for cosmetic issues that can’t be remedied easily. These conditions include frown lines, wrinkles around the mouth, and saggy skin. Botox has even been used to help minimize the unevenness of the skin’s texture by smoothing it out and reducing the appearance of crevices.

Botox injections are performed during an outpatient procedure that takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. It is accomplished by:
- Selection of the injection site, which is determined by the patient’s intention and the professional’s assessment of the area to be treated
- The Botox injections are delivered in a series of small shots
- No local anesthetic is required
