How does Botox work?
Botox is an injection of the botulism toxin in a safe, refined form. Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin over them appears smoother.
Getting an injection is relatively painless, and you should only feel a small prick at the injection site. You may notice redness or swelling at the injection site immediately afterward but this should subside quickly. You may see some results quickly, but it could be a week before you see the full effect of the injections.
There is maintenance recommended with Botox injections. Botox can keep your muscles relaxed for up to four months, but your doctor will recommend follow-up injections every three to six months to maintain your results.
What are the benefits?
Botox relaxes the facial muscles responsible for these fine lines to soften their appearance. There are different tiers of plastic surgery available that can drastically change your appearance, but Botox injections are a way to achieve a softer, more youthful appearance that still looks like you.
Botox can target Crow's feet, vertical lines between the eyes, wrinkles around the mouth, forehead lines, and more. We love to see patients get a boost of confidence from improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
