Botox Marin-a magical injection

BotoxTM is a prescribed medicine that is injected into muscles to improve moderate to severe facial frown lines.  It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the target muscle that is causing the line.  Under the influence of BotoxTM, the muscle fails to contract, so it cannot continue to etch a line into the skin over time.  The most common areas treated are between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).  The forehead (frontalis muscle) and crow’s feet (obicularis oculi) are the second most commonly treated areas. 

The vertical lines between the eyebrows form as a result of frequent contraction of the muscles from squinting, frowning, or intense concentration.  The contraction of these muscles causes the skin to furrow and fold, and as the skin ages, losing its collagen and elasticity; persistent lines appear in these areas.  This also happens on the forehead and in the crow’s feet area.  These lines can lend a tired or even scowling appearance to the face.

The great thing about botox is that it does wear off in 6 months and the muscle animation is back to normal.   This is a nice way to introduce yourself to the cosmetic surgery industry.

Dr. Miguel Delgado has offices in San Francisco at Union Square and Marin County in Novato.
