HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Botox Cosmetic, made by the pharmaceutical company Allergan, contains a purified form of botulinum toxin.
Botox treat fine lines and wrinkles created when you repeatedly make expressions. These dynamic wrinkles create forehead furrows, worry lines, and crows feet.
The injectable wrinkle reducers halt the muscle activity associated with dynamic wrinkles, effectively smoothing your complexion. The effects are temporary, lasting 3-4 months, but you can get repeat injections to maintain a youthful look.
WHAT TYPES OF WRINKLES CAN BOTOX ADDRESS?
Botox is FDA approved to treat:
- Crows feet around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- The elevens, or worry lines, between the brows
Worry lines between the brows as well injectables in other areas of your face and neck, too. For example, she may use them to reduce the appearance of vertical neck cords, chin dimpling, and lines around the mouth.
After Botox treatments, your whole look softens naturally. You look more approachable, younger, and relaxed.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?
Botox injections are available to people 18 and older. The wrinkle-reducing effects are usually most noticeable in people who have already developed mild or moderate wrinkles.
Younger women in their 20s and 30s sometimes opt for Botox injections to prevent wrinkles. Because the injectables halt some of the wrinkles that naturally occur when you smile or squint, these lines dont etch in your skin, and you maintain a more youthful look as you age.
