What is Botox?

Knoxville men and women absolutely love coming to Dr. Hall and his team for their Botox treatments. Botox is one of the best and fastest ways for patients to remove wrinkles on their face that might make them look old and tired. Here’s how it works.

The botulinum toxin is produced by bacteria that can grow in still water and in some canned foods. Botox is derived from this bacterial toxin and in this safe, highly-processed form, it is used to “erase” facial wrinkles.

After Botox is injected, it temporarily paralyzed the facial muscles underneath the skin. This prevents the muscles from contracting and squeezing the skin to form wrinkles. The results are usually visible within 5 to 7 days after the treatment and can sometimes last up 3-4 months.

Can I Prevent Wrinkles with Botox?

Knoxville patients are usually surprised to learn that they could actually be able to prevent new wrinkles from forming with regular Botox treatments. As our bodies age, they stop producing as much collagen–the protein that gives your skin volume and “tightness.” By regularly reducing the amount of “squeezing” that your muscles do on your skin for months at a time, patients could be able to prevent new wrinkles from forming as they age.
