Botox injections can work wonders for those wanting to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It’s why the procedure is so popular.
So, What Exactly Does Botox Do?
Botox is a medication that includes a small amount of a toxin that can block signals that pass between muscles and nerves. Your muscles naturally contract and relax many times throughout the day, often without your even being aware of it. Over time, this leads to the appearance of creases, or wrinkles, in your skin. When Botox is injected into a particular muscle group, it can stop those contractions for a period of time. Smoother skin is the result.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of Botox to treat a variety of issues, including fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Botox injections are safe and effective. The drug is fast-acting, and its effects can last for months. Patients report only a slight discomfort during the procedure – similar to what is felt with any type of needle injection.
Who Benefits From Botox
Botox injections are a quick and easy way to enhance your appearance.
Botox can help with many types of wrinkles, including vertical lines between the eyebrows (the “11s”), frown lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes.
Best of all, Botox can help you look more youthful, without surgery. You get the fresh look you’ve been wanting, at a fraction of the cost and without the commitment required for some surgical procedures.
