Botox 101: How does Botox work?

TREATS DYNAMIC FACIAL WRINKLES

Botox Cosmetic is a perfect solution for smoothing wrinkles and creases caused by facial expressions and repetitive facial movements. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contraction of muscles that are attached to the overlying skin. Botox is FDA-approved to temporarily smooth the glabellar lines (“frown lines”), which are the lines between your eyebrows that can make you look tired, cranky, or angry. However, Botox is often used off-label for horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines at the corners of the mouth, and smoker’s lines around the lips.

BLOCKS NERVE SIGNALS TO MUSCLES

Botox is injected into the facial muscle and blocks the nerve signals to that muscle. In effect, the underlying muscles are paralyzed. The injected muscle no longer contracts, which causes the fine lines and wrinkles in that area to relax and soften.

PREVENTS FUTURE WRINKLES

One of the best things about Botox is not only does it smooth wrinkles and lines now, it also helps prevent future wrinkles from forming. The inactivated muscle no longer pulls the skin, so no new wrinkles are formed. In addition, Botox helps slow the development of deeper wrinkles and makes the area easier to treat. Thus, Botox now reduces the need for Botox treatments in the future. In short, Botox will help you look younger for a longer time.

YOUR SKIN DESERVES THE BEST

Since it was FDA-approved in 2002, Botox has been widely used, researched, studied, and loved. While Botox injections are safe and relatively simple, the treatment still needs to be done by a trained and experienced medical professional. Be Medispa is lead by a board certified, experienced physician with a proven track record and an excellent reputation.
