Botox® (neuromodulators)

As the years pass, they will reflect on your skin, including your face. Luckily, neuromodulators such as Botox® can help diminish the sings of aging from your complexion by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful look.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a type of injectable medication made from a botulinum toxin that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Botox® is FDA-approved for the treatment of fine lines and deep wrinkles on your face and can be used for subtle and more dramatic anti-aging results. Botox temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.

Why Botox®?

Getting Botox® injections is a fast, effective way of smoothing out the wrinkles. While you may experience a slight pinpoint discomfort, the treatment is safe and can provide the results you are looking for. Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, the treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime. You can go back to work or continue to do your daily business immediately following your treatment.

What areas can be treated?

  • Forehead
  • Glabella (between the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet (outer corners of the eyes)


Botox® Q & A

When we squint, frown, or make other facial expressions, our nerves release acetylcholine,  a neurotransmitter chemical. This neurotransmitter binds to receptors within the muscle to make it contract. Neuromodulators such as Botox® block signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.

The neuromodulators used in Bellezza Aesthetics by Dr. M are FDA-approved. The best way to ensure you receive the results you are looking for is to only receive injections from a highly experienced provider.

For most patients the effects of the treatment can last from 3-4 months. Many factors such as your age, skin condition, diet, facial structure and others, can influence how long the effects last.
