How BOTOX works
BOTOX is used to treat the dynamic wrinkle, which is caused by the movements of the cheek and brow muscles over the decades. Laugh lines and frown lines are dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX makes the facial muscles relax. You should see results in one to two days, and it shouldn’t wear off three to six months. It’s safe to get a follow-up injection after the first one wears off. A lof ot patients find that the results of BOTOX last longer after several treatments.
Don’t take BOTOX if you’re pregnant, nursing or have a neurological disease. And since it’s only for one specific kind of wrinkle, you sohuld treat other wrinkles, such as smile lines around the nose and lip area, with injectable fillers or a lift. Find a good surgeon to tell you what combination of treatments is right for you.
