BOTOX® Cosmetic in Knoxville: How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

In medical terms, BOTOX® Cosmetic accomplishes “selective muscle denervation.” In simple terms, this means that BOTOX® Cosmetic, when injected by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Dean Kleto, smooths skin and eliminates wrinkles by preventing muscle contractions in the face.

Your neuromuscular junction is the point where nerves and muscles meet. Generally, nerves send constant signals to muscles which result in tension that can lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the receptors on the muscle side of this junction, preventing tension and resulting in a relaxed and youthful appearance.

Because BOTOX® Cosmetic does not damage the nerves, this effect is temporary and requires new injections every three to four months for continued results.
