How does Botox work?
When your doctor administers Botox, it sends a signal to the muscular nerves in the area you wish to treat. This weakens the muscles so they cannot contract. Despite what you may have heard, Botox does not make your face freeze or impair your ability to smile. It acts to reduce wrinkles as well as the deeply-set lines that make us look older.
What to expect from Botox treatment
Whether you get a Botox injection to eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, or another cosmetic issue, you can return to normal activities the same day as your appointment. Some patients have described the sensation of the injection as feeling like an insect bite. Red skin or soreness for a few hours after a Botox treatment are both normal. You can expect to see noticeable results from your procedure after about one week.
