How does Botox® work?
Botox® is a highly purified protein which works by injecting it into the facial muscles, creating a barrier between nerves and muscles to temporarily paralyze the muscles. This lack of muscle activity reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What does Botox® do?
Botox® is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles through temporary muscle paralysis; however, it is also beneficial for treating muscular problems and excessive sweating.
When does Botox® start working?
Botox® usually starts working 1-2 days after treatment, although it can vary from patient to patient. It can sometimes take up to two weeks for Botox® to take full effect.
