Chicago dermatologist Dr. Charles Zugerman offers minimally-invasive options for reducing wrinkles and other signs of facial aging. One such option is BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® is derived from a purified protein known as botulinum toxin A. When injected, BOTOX® blocks wrinkle-causing nerve muscles, leaving patients with a younger, refreshed appearance. BOTOX® injections can often be completed within less than 10 minutes, and patients can immediately resume their regular activities. The results of BOTOX® are apparent within a a few days and can last anywhere from a few months to a whole year. To retain these results, patients often undergo additional BOTOX® treatments.
