Botox is a safe and effective treatment that has been FDA-approved since 2002. It targets the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to relax. When muscles relax, the overlying skin softens and smoothes out. Since the treatment does not prevent you from forever making facial expressions, patients can still enjoy the normal movement of their face and mouth.
Botox is injected into muscles and works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscle and reducing muscle contractions. This relaxes the underlying muscle and prevents it from contracting and making the wrinkle worse. Results typically last between three and four months. Most patients can expect to see results within three to five days.
