Botox, one of the common names for Botulinum toxin type A, is an injectable purified substance that comes from bacteria.
One of the most visible signs of aging is wrinkles. Any facial movement – frowning, chewing, smiling or squinting for example, can cause wrinkles. Wrinkles make you look tired, angry, and sad even when you don’t feel that way. Dr. Ronald Caniglia can provide one of the safest, quickest remedies to wrinkle-producing issues with Botox injections.
What Can Botox Do for Me?
Botox injections block the signals of muscular nerves. This weakens the muscle making it unable to contract. Without this ability, you won’t develop unwanted facial wrinkles.
A few issues Botulinum toxin injections can help with include:
- Crow’s feet
- Furrowed foreheads
- Frown lines
- Skin bands around the neck
Botulinum toxin injections can be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers, and microdermabrasion. The combination of these procedures may help prevent the formation of new lines or wrinkles, and will further improve results.

The Art and Science of the Botox Procedure in Scottsdale
Dr. Ronald Caniglia is a certified specialist trained to administer Botox injections. The injection of botulinum toxin is more than a simple few shots; it is the art and science of administering the shot to the correct muscle at the correct point. With 43 facial muscles it is vital to pinpoint the correct spot for optimal treatment.
After Dr. Caniglia carefully chooses specific muscles he uses a very thin needle, inserting small amounts of botulinum toxin into certain areas of that muscle. This weakens the wrinkle-producing muscle while preserving the natural facial expressions.
The number of injections depends on facial features and the extent of the wrinkles. Average Botox procedures in Scottsdale usually take less than 15 minutes to perform.
