Therefore, it’s not surprising that Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment worldwide.
Despite this notoriety, it’s important for women and men considering Botox to understand how it works, treatment benefits, and correction capabilities.
Continue reading to learn all about Botox.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to smooth expression lines and relax wrinkles.
Composed of botulinum toxin type A, Botox blocks nerve impulses to achieve therapeutic effects. Accordingly, it’s known as a neuromodulator.
Dysport and Xeomin are two other neurotoxin options for women and men that want to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery or downtime.
How Does Botox Work?
When injected in small doses, Botox and other neuromodulators prevent the release of acetylcholine and inhibit muscle contraction. Doing so, temporarily paralyzes targeted facial muscles and limits wrinkle-causing expressions.
As a result, lines and wrinkles relax, but patients maintain natural facial movement.
What Does Botox Do?
Botox is best-known for its ability to smooth horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
It’s also well-suited for correction of bunny lines on the bridge of the nose, vertical lip lines, droopy or uneven brows, hyperhidrosis, chronic migraines, and Bells’ Palsy symptoms.
What Are the Benefits of Botox?
One of the main advantages of Botox is its non-invasive, non-surgical nature. It’s also quick, safe, and extremely effective.
Plus, neurotoxin injections require zero downtime, and patients can see results in three-to-seven days.
These effects typically last three-to-four months. During this time, women and men can enjoy smoother skin, improved facial harmony, and a more-balanced and youthful appearance.
