Botox is a neuromodulator derived from a refined and purified version of the botulinum toxin. It works by blocking the chemical signals that trigger the facial muscles to contract.
By relaxing the muscles in your face for a span of several months, it helps smooth out existing wrinkles, while also keeping new wrinkles from appearing.
Doctors have relied on Botox injections for many years to treat a wide range of medical conditions, such as eye and neck muscle spasms.

Dr. Constantine’s Philosophy on Botox
If you’ve seen certain movies or TV shows that exaggerate the results of Botox for comedic effect, you may be worried that you will have an “overdone” appearance, or even that Botox will freeze your muscles into an unnatural expression. On the contrary, the effects of Botox are very subtle and natural when a skilled cosmetic surgeon performs your treatment.
When Will I See the Final Results?
After you get your injections, the results gradually reveal themselves over the course of a week or two. Though the results of Botox are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. You can expect to enjoy the effects for four to eight months, after which you can maintain your results with touch-up treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Botox injections are safe for people in good health who do not have a neuromuscular disorder or who are not pregnant or nursing, and side effects from Botox injections are very rare.
