BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin A) injections are used to treat certain lines and wrinkles of the upper face. Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet lines on the sides of our eyes are the most common areas for BOTOX® injections. These lines are caused by our muscles involved in facial expression. As we age, these muscles gradually get stronger and bigger, eventually leaving a visible line between the muscle fibers. BOTOX® works by causing a temporary weakness/paralysis of the muscles, thus causing the wrinkle to diminish. After a muscle is injected with BOTOX®, it relaxes over the next few days with a maximum effect seen at 2 weeks.

Price: At Nutura Clinic, our price for BOTOX® injections is $10 per unit. We do have a 10 units minimum for any BOTOX.

Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. While botulinum toxin is a potent toxin that can cause botulism, a severe and potentially life-threatening illness, when used in controlled and purified forms, it has various medical and cosmetic applications.

Here is some information about Botox:

1. Cosmetic Use: Wrinkle Reduction: Botox is commonly used in cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly on the face. It works by temporarily paralyzing or relaxing the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, such as those around the eyes (crow's feet) and forehead.

2. Medical Use: Botox is also used for medical purposes to treat conditions characterized by muscle overactivity or spasticity. It is employed in the treatment of conditions such as muscle spasms, cervical dystonia (neck muscle spasms), hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and certain types of migraines.

3. How it Works: Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. This temporary paralysis or muscle relaxation can smooth out wrinkles and alleviate symptoms of conditions related to muscle overactivity.
