About Botox Treatments 
Botox is a skin treatment that gained popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It’s now one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United  States,  and is offered at offices across the country. It’s a drug made from a substance called botulinum toxin, which “freezes” the muscles temporarily to give the skin a smoother, tighter and younger appearance.

What Does Botox Treat?
There are a number of common aesthetic problems that can be treated with Botox at Dr. Mary's Chicago office:

  • wrinkles and deep lines
  • crows feet around the eyes
  • smile lines
  • sagging skin
  • excessive sweating from the skin pores

Botox has also been found to be helpful for softening lines around the mouth, getting rid of forehead lines and reducing the appearance of crow’s feet. Patients who have saggy or folded skin around the neck also might benefit from this skin treatment.
