Botox® is one of the most in-demand anti-aging procedures in the world. Since its creation, Botox® has established itself as one of the safest and most reliable cosmetic treatments for reversing signs of aging. With just a few injections, the simple Botox® treatment can take years off your age. The Botox® treatment works by reducing expression lines, the deep creases and wrinkles that form on the face thanks to years of facial movement. Expression lines, like laugh lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, typically form around the brows, forehead, eyes, and mouth. Botox® results can last up to 4 months, and numerous studies have shown that repeated use is safe and has very little risks.
How Botox® Works
Botox® softens the appearance of wrinkles by affecting the facial muscles that, thanks to decades of repeated use, lead to the development of wrinkles. Botox® is a neuromodulator, which means that it works by blocking signals that activate muscle contractions. By relaxing the muscles and preventing them from contracting, Botox® softens the expression lines caused by the muscles and giving the patient a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance. The patient can see a noticeable improvement as soon as a few days after the treatment, with maximum results appearing after a week.
