Everything You Need to Know About Botox®

Botox® injections are a popular option for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Celebrities have long used the treatment for maintaining their youthful appearances. Yet, despite the popularity of these injections, many people still have misconceptions about the treatment or are confused about what it entails.

Here’s everything you need to know about this popular cosmetic option:
How It Works

Botox® is a solution that includes Botulinum Toxin Type A. The solution helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles by targeting the muscles under the skin. The medication causes the muscles to relax, which in turn causes the skin to soften and smooth out.

The Treatment

Botox® is administered by an injection. A small needle is used for the injection, typically around the eyes and the forehead. The procedure takes only a few minutes, and patients can leave as soon as it is over. There is no downtime or recovery. Ongoing injections are required every twelve weeks or so to maintain the results.

Safety

Despite the name “Botulinum Toxin Type A,” this treatment is actually quite safe. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic use in 2002 and continues to meet safety standards. Of course, it is always important to discuss any cosmetic procedures with your doctor first to ensure that you have no special health concerns that would present an issue.
