Botox is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows’ feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The purified protein blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes. Dermatology Associates of Tampa is Tampa Bay's premier choice for Botox treatments.
