Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is a biological toxin that has been transformed into a therapeutic agent. It has long been used to treat various neurological disorders. In recent years, it has been widely used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet and other areas of the face with hyperactive muscles that cause prominent lines or wrinkles. At Dr. Gikas’ Chicago plastic surgery facility, patients seeking to diminish signs of aging are given Botox to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Gikas also provides other rejuvenating skin care treatments, including Restylane and Radiesse.
