Botox : What Is It Made Of and How Does It Work?
Botox, or more precisely botulinum toxin, is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein that has the capacity to accurately relax the muscles to which it is applied. The skin over the treated muscles gradually becomes smoother to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. The effects of the treatment last for several months before the muscles gradually return to their original condition. Price upon consultation. www.botox.com
In Which Areas of the Face Is Botox Injected?
Botox is most often injected into the face’s areas where expression lines appear (forehead and temples). Wrinkles occur because, as we age, the skin loses its elasticity. Therefore, when a muscle in any of these areas undergoes repeated movement, the skin no longer returns to its original shape. Very often, the injections target forehead wrinkles, but also frown lines (between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet (corner of the eyes).
More areas can receive Botox injections:
- Vertical wrinkles on the lips
- The bitterness folds (each side of the mouth up to the chin)
- The wrinkles of the nose, nostrils
- The chin
- The neck
Before making the decision to take advantage of Botox injections, it is important to consult, as hyaluronic acid filler injections may be more suitable for you.
How Long Do the Effects of Botox Injections Last?
The effects of Botox begin to gradually disappear from 4 months after the first procedure. After that, the effects can last for 6 to 7 months, due to avoiding moving the affected muscles.
