How Does Botox Work?

Published on March 15, 2017 by

Botox is most likely the first name you think of when it comes to reducing wrinkles. Botox injections have proven to be one of the best options for reducing the visible signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and small folds.

Instead of focusing on the skin, Botox focuses on treating the primary cause of your wrinkles and fine lines: stiff facial muscles. Facial muscles can become sore from repeated use, which can cause them to freeze in unnatural positions. This causes the skin above the muscles to fold and form wrinkles.

Botox is injected into the muscles to temporarily paralyze them, helping them to relax. As the muscles relax, the skin above them is able to relax, becoming smooth and free of wrinkles.
