Previously, Botulinum A Toxin (Botox) has been used for the treatment of eyelid spasm, eye spasm, neck muscle spasm and facial muscle imbalances for many years. After injection, Botox works to temporarily (months) paralyze the affected muscle, and thereby releases the spasm or softens the facial imbalance.
The same principles that make BOTOX® Cosmetic effective as a medical treatment make it effective as a cosmetic treatment, and Injecting small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic into facial muscles results in localized paralysis and a more relaxed facial expression.
Dr. Maas of The Appearance Care CenterTM has been a pioneer in the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic for cosmetic applications to achieve maximum results, in addition to avoiding the “frozen,” “surprised,” or “expressionless” look that concerns many prospective patients.
