Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing muscles.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften.
Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox. It can also be used for lip lines and for the chin and corner of the mouth and neck.
Most patients begin to notice an effect three to five days after their injections, with full results becoming visible after 14 days. When injected for cosmetic purposes, Botox lasts four to six months on average, but you can expect the effects of your first treatment to wear off faster.
Regular Botox use can actually retrain certain muscles to move less, leading to smoother skin with less Botox over time.
