What is Botox?
Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world. Many people looking for a non-surgical way to enhance their facial features turn to Botox as a solution. This standard, FDA-approved treatment is highly effective at smoothing and preventing facial wrinkling due to aging, with minimal side effects.
There are over 16 years of research studying the safety of Botox. Millions of people have received Botox, and it is particularly effective for reducing wrinkling among those who begin treatment in their twenties and thirties.
How Does Botox Work?
Every time you make a facial expression, you are moving a handful of muscles that fold and stretch your facial skin. Over time your skin begins to permanently crease and wrinkle. Typical areas of wrinkling include the forehead, under the eyes, and eyebrows.
Botox relaxes your facial muscles, so they do not bend and crease your facial skin as much as they naturally would. The injectable also reduces muscle activity in your face all around, making your skin look smoother and younger.
The Injection Process
Botox is injected into the treatment area using a small syringe. Most patients describe the procedure as generally painless, but this depends on the treatment area and the individual. Overall, it causes no more irritation than a shot—often much less.
These treatments are quick, with the procedure only taking minutes to complete. This makes it easy to work an appointment into your schedule. Botox also works fast to reduce wrinkling. Patients tend to see their wrinkles smoothen within 24 to 48 hours.
Maintaining Your Results
Botox is an easy and low-maintenance procedure. The results of each treatment can last between two to four months, depending on where it is applied. Research suggests the more regularly you get Botox, the longer each treatment will last.
Treatments can last up to six months in some cases and extend the youthful look of your skin over time. Once you cease treatment, your skin ages at its regular rate again—neither faster nor slower.
