What is Botox?

Botox is a well-researched, FDA-approved injectable medicine that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When you smile, laugh, frown, or squint, the muscle action etches creases into your face. Botox relaxes this muscle action, so wrinkles are less apparent and form more slowly.

Proper application of Botox softens your look but doesn’t make it look like you’ve had “work” done. This is why you should seek the expertise of the team at Halper Family Medicine.

What is Botox for Migraines?

Botox is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches. Botox enters the nerve endings around where it is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.
