One of the most popular tools in the fight against signs of aging is Botox. Botox injections are a quick and convenient cosmetic procedure that targets the muscles of the face that contribute to wrinkles.

Technically known as botulinum toxin, Botox works by paralyzing injected muscles to prevent them from participating in the regular facial movements that create wrinkles along the eyes, nose and mouth. Botox is as much of an art as it is a science; it takes a skilled, experienced practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer to strike the right balance of Botox to suit your needs.

Common signs of aging are crow’s feet along the eyes, accordion lines on the sides of the mouth or lines in the forehead. Overexposure to the sun as well as genetics contribute to signs of aging. The results of the injections are immediately apparent and can last up to six months.
