No matter how hard we try to take care and preserve our skin throughout our lives, signs of aging are bound to catch up with us. With all the daily facial expressions, fine lines, creases, and wrinkles will start to develop around our eyes and forehead, and make us look angry, tired, or sad — even when we’re not. In addition, factors such as stress and genetics will bring out wrinkles and creases, and make us look and feel older than we really are.

Fortunately, Botox has the ability to treat and reverse visible signs of aging, and can help restore an overall youthful appearance to the face. Botox is the top selling FDA-approved product of its kind, can inhibit the contractions of muscles that contribute to wrinkles and creases, and produce a softer, smoother, and younger appearance.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with Botox?
Botox is mostly used to soften fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead and around the eyes. occasionally, Botox is even used to relax tight neck bands and soften your jawline and chin.
How does Botox work?
Botox is injected using a small, fine needle into the muscles on your face responsible for causing the contractions that lead to creases and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin, which is the active ingredient in Botox, prevents the nerve impulse from reaching those muscles and allows your muscles to relax so creases and wrinkles can become softer and less noticeable.
What is Botox treatment like?
Botox is a relatively quick treatment that usually takes up to 15 minutes to perform. You may experience slight discomfort during the injection that lasts for a few seconds, but goes away almost instantly following treatment.
One of the major benefits to having Botox is that there is zero downtime associated with the treatment. You’ll simply look refreshed, vibrant, and younger within a few days of treatment.
