How Botox Works
Botox is an injection that works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle and stopping the injected muscle from contracting. When this occurs, wrinkles instantly soften and relax. Botox is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which may be found on your forehead, between your eyebrows, along your frown lines, and above your lips.
Dynamic wrinkles appear whenever you make facial expressions, not when your face is relaxed. Since Botox is a quick, painless treatment that comes with no downtime, you are free to resume work and your other daily activities immediately.
Is Botox Long-Lasting?
It’s important to understand that while Botox is an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles, it is not a permanent treatment. If you receive Botox, you can expect it to fill wrinkles for three to six months.
