Botox® is one of the most famous anti-aging cosmetic treatments in the world. With 20 years of cosmetic use, Botox® treats dynamic wrinkles without surgery. People age gracefully without struggling to hide frustrating fine lines and wrinkles. While it is a popular and effective treatment, Botox® is a temporary treatment requiring repeated sessions to maintain results.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® is an injection made of botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily blocks the nerve signals to problematic muscles, lessening wrinkles around the forehead, eyebrows, and eyes. Patients typically receive three to five injections for optimal results.
Botox® takes 3-5 days to see results, with optimal results taking up to 2 weeks. You do not need to take time off work for Botox® injections but should avoid jostling, bumping, massaging, or applying any pressure to the injection site for 48 hours. For 3-4 hours after your injections, it is best to avoid lying down or bending over to prevent the Botox® from shifting.
