How does Botox Work?
With over 20 million injections globally, Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). Botox is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles in the desired area. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. The Botox can take up to two (2) weeks to fully take effect, reflecting the time necessary to disrupt the synaptosomal process.
Who should not have Botox?
Botulinum injections should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.
What do I need to know?
- Getting a Botox injection takes just a few minutes.
- Botox injections also are frequently used to reduce other wrinkles on the face and neck, such as crow’s feet, brow furrow, and forehead lines
- The results are temporary, typically lasting between 3 to 5 months. You will have to return for injections every 3 to 4 months to keep a long-lasting effect.
- The dose of Botox usually is the same, or less, each time you get an injection. It does NOT increase over time or cause wrinkles to worsen once you stop.
- Over time, the muscles soften and lines fade and can even disappear.
Botox injections are more convenient and less painful than other procedures for reducing wrinkles and making your face look younger.
- They work best in conjunctions with Skin Tightening (Venus Freeze), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing and integrated home care).
To keep the effect, you will have to get injections several times a year
