What are Botox® Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments?Botox®, also known as botulinum toxin, is a non-invasive injectable treatment used to rejuvenate the face. Currently the number one cosmetic treatment used for dynamic (movement associated) lines, Botox® works by relaxing the underlying muscles that cause the skin to crease and develop lines or wrinkles.
How Do Botox® Injections Work?Injecting Botox® is a quick and simple procedure that works by weakening the facial muscles used for certain expressions, such as frowning or squinting. When Botox® is injected into a specific muscle it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle, which means the nerve cannot tell the muscle to move. The effects last between 3-6 months when your facial expressions will return to normal.
Although it is most commonly used to treat wrinkles, Botox® can also be used to stop you sweating, to alleviate migraines and tension headaches and to correct a square jaw or ‘gummy smile’. Although the cosmetic benefits of Botox® have only been realized in the last two decades, its use in medicine dates back more than 200 years.
