Botox injections are the most popular way for people to reduce or eliminate their facial wrinkles. The FDA approved treatment is comprised of minimally invasive injections that are made from botulinum toxin A. Botox is injected into the skin and it works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, which makes the wrinkles soften and relax. This treatment is most often used for frown lines, crow’s feet and lines on the forehead.
After treatment, within one day you should already notice that your wrinkles have improved and over the next five days, you will see the final results. There are many patients who get the results they were looking for after just one treatment, but there is a chance of needing other treatments in the future. The benefits of Botox will last for up to four months, but there are some patients who see the improvement for up to a year.
