How Does BOTOX Work?
You’re probably familiar with the way natural age causes skin to lose its elasticity. This is the phenomenon that leads to wrinkles and crow’s feet. However, by relaxing facial muscles, it’s possible to smooth out skin, greatly improving the appearance of wrinkles. Sometimes, it’s even possible to make them vanish altogether.
We are able to accomplish this by injecting Botox in the muscles that cause tension on our skin causing wrinkles. The name “Botox” is actually shorthand for the phrase “Botulinum toxin.” The word “toxin” may throw you off, but rest assured that when injected in small amounts, Botox is perfectly safe and effective.
Botox, or Botulinum toxin, works by binding to the receptors on muscles, then temporarily paralyzing them. Usually, many small injections are needed to correct the wrinkles. Each little injection is like a tiny pinprick. With each injection, only a very small amount of BOTOX is injected – less than a droplet. The total amount injected depends on your preferences. If you have many wrinkles or lines you’d like to improve, you’ll need more units of Botox. Heather Parlett, Physician Assistant and expert injector, will assess the patient and determine how much Botox each patient needs.
When to Expect Results
You will likely begin to notice results anywhere from two to fourteen days after your Botox injection. However, we encourage you not to expect results the day you receive your Botox treatment. It takes time for the Botox to bind to the receptors on the muscles. However, you can expect and look forward to your Botox treatment tightening and smoothing your skin for the next three to six months.
