How does Botox work?
Botox is an incredibly popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment used for wrinkle reduction. Botox is toxin found in a particular type of bacteria, which has the ability to relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This includes crow’s feet around the eyes, creases between the eyebrows and on the forehead.
Botox is injected into the skin and works by temporarily preventing muscle movement, specifically targeting those muscles that cause wrinkles. Results from the injection can be seen anywhere between 24 hours after injection up to 12 days later. Although each case is unique, most patients find that their injections last up to 4 months. Botox injections should be repeated after your initial treatment is you want to maintain the same fresh look.
What are the side effects of Botox?
When used appropriately and administered by a skilled dentist, Botox has no side effects. Although if you do choose to have Botox, your dentist will recommend avoiding anti-inflammatory medications, vitamin E and aspirin for 2 weeks prior to your treatment in order to avoid bruising during your procedure.
