Botox Injection (botulinum toxin) is a cosmetic treatment that helps to visually correct fine lines and deeper wrinkles that may make your face look tired, unhappy, or angry. Botulinum Toxin is injected into muscular tissue to weaken certain muscle activity. It relaxes and unwinds muscles and keeps them from contracting.
Each time a muscle contracts, it causes the skin sitting on top of it to fold over—and eventually that causes a wrinkle or line formation. The forehead creases, the nasal bridge folds between your eyes, and wrinkles at the corners of your eyes are all a result of your facial muscle contractions.
The benefits of Botox injections include nearly instant results, as well as prevention of permanent development of deep wrinkles. The suggested age to start injections is after 25 years, when fine lines begin to form. In general, the results appear within 3 to 14 days, and they last for up to three to six months. With time, the muscle activity will gradually return to normal, which signals the good time to have injections done again.
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved. The procedure may take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the quantity of the product to be injected. Typically, a patient will observe the following results: younger-looking skin, smoothing out of the fine lines and wrinkles, less active facial muscles in the treated areas.
