What is It?
BOTOX® a purified protein solution. When the substance is administered in small injections, it works by blocking nerve impulses and reducing muscle activity. It has been approved by the FDA since 2002 for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. It is a highly popular and widely-used avenue in the vein of wrinkle treatment.
How Long Does it Take to Administer?
Many individuals opt for BOTOX® injections because it takes a mere matter of minutes and requires no set downtime. After your session, you can immediately return to your normal routine.
How Do BOTOX® Injections Differ From Dermal Fillers?
It works by relaxing the muscles to stop wrinkles and creases that are caused by facial expressions. The injections can be administered on the upper part of the face, which includes around the eyes and the forehead, as well as in lower areas such as the nasolabial folds and certain regions of the neck. Dermal fillers use substances, such as hyaluronic acid, to fill and plump areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The results of treatment will typically last about three to six months. As the serum wears off, the muscles will gradually start to return to their normal function, causing fine lines and wrinkles to resurface.
How Long Will It Take for the Results to Surface?
You may begin to notice the effects of BOTOX® hours after the injections. However, the full results will typically surface days after the injections are administered.
When You Shouldn’t Have BOTOX® Injections
Although BOTOX® injections are extremely safe, it should not be administered on individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can Younger People Have BOTOX® Injections?
