Botox, the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, is a popular FDA-approved non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes, thick bands in the neck and to raise the lateral brow as well as the corner of the lip. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the muscle contraction that causes persistent facial lines (wrinkles) that have developed over time to give the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies suggest that Botox is also effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes. There is no recovery time needed and within days, you will notice an improvement in the moderate to severe facial lines. Results can last up to 4-6 months. The use of Botox on a regular basis every 4 months, typically 5-6 times in total, may lead to permanent weakness of the muscle which may provide long term wrinkle reduction without the need for continued injections.
Botox Procedures to Reduce Wrinkles
The use of Botox to reduce visible wrinkles is dramatically becoming common throughout the world. The question arises what is the end-point: no wrinkles at rest or no lines of facial expression? More Botox is required if: a reduction of facial expression is sought, in areas where there is a greater muscle mass (for example platysma neck bands and inter-brow furrows) and in males over females in general.
The injection of botulinum toxin takes only a few minutes in the office. Effects are usually apparent in 4 to 10 days. Benefits last for 3 to 6 months.
Once you try it, you will be amazed that it took you so long!
