Botox at Maria Cardenas DMD

     As we age we may notice more pronounced lines and wrinkles.Botulinum toxin (botox) injections temporally reduce and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. When injected the muscles will contract less and become less stiff, which allows for wrinkles to soften and relax. In 2011 a study was completed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which concluded Botox was number one for minimally invasive procedures. Botulinum toxin has been around for several years, and is becoming more popular.
