What is Botox?
Botox is a nonsurgical therapy that can make a remarkable difference in softening and virtually eliminating deep furrows and wrinkles between your brows, creases on your forehead, and crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox is a medicine that is injected with a very fine needle in the skin with very little or no discomfort to the patient. It is used very safely, simply and effectively. By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox reduces wrinkles. Botox is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.
How Does The Botox Work?
Botox acts as a nerve impulse blocker. Botox actually prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. Botox binds to the nerve endings and blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.
