BOTOX injections contain botulinum toxin product A, which is a naturally occurring protein that stops facial muscle contractions. Botox injections are applied within specific muscle groups to stop the nerve signals that cause those muscles to contract and release and when these nerve signals no longer send messages to the facial muscles they are connected to, it results in the relaxation of those targeted muscles which results in smoothed out frown lines, and less appearance of wrinkles.
BOTOX cosmetic procedures are administered into the face and work to temporarily stop muscle action in the targeted areas so that there is no creasing or folding of the skin which is what causes wrinkles. The entire procedure takes 15-20 minutes and is performed right in office. After the BOTOX is applied you will notice a younger-looking and smoother appearance that will reach its peak by day 8 following the treatment. BOTOX can also be incorporated with other skin care regimens for enhanced improvement to reach your aesthetic goals and facial replenishment.
Many people get confused about BOTOX and do not have realistic expectations due to the myth that it will freeze your face and leave you looking emotionless. Our faces are genetically programmed to move in a certain way and BOTOX Cosmetic works with your face muscles to build up a resistance against overusing those muscles. However, there are different treatment levels, and you can always opt for a more natural looking option that still preserves some movement in the upper face, giving you an overall facial rejuvenation or enhanced facial features.
