How Botox Works
To completely smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, small measurements of Botox are injected into the specific muscle of the problem area that is causing the wrinkling. The Botox serum then relaxes the muscle by hindering all signals that are normally made from the nerve to muscle. Once the injection is made, the muscle will no longer be able to contract–allowing the wrinkles to soften and over time, completely disappear. The most common areas for Botox injections are normally located in the eyebrows area–where frown lines occur–and around the eyes–crow’s feet–and the forehead. Normally, the effects of Botox will last from 3 to 5 months. Once that time is up, a second round of treatments will be needed. After several treatments and proper upkeep, the effects of Botox will begin to maintain a longer timeline and extend past the standard 3 to 5 months. Most importantly, Botox treatments are virtually painless. The most pain you will experience is the slight pinching as the needle is being injected into the skin. However, if you are someone who doesn’t fair well with needles or shots, be sure to talk to your specialist about your concerns. In many cases, the specialists may be able to apply a topical numbing agent before the procedure. Botox is truly a versatile procedure–for both men and women–that can treat a variety of medical and cosmetic issues.
