What Exactly Is the Botox Treatment?
The muscles in our faces and necks are put to relatively constant use. Speaking, making facial expressions, and thousands of other actions that we take (often without even realizing it) put our facial muscles to work. Over time, the use of these muscles can start to cause creases, lines, and wrinkles in the skin that sits on top of them.
Botox is a non-surgical treatment design to smooth over these lines and wrinkles, creating skin that looks younger, fresher, and more voluminous by eliminating these signs of aging.
Using very specific amounts of a compound known as botulinum toxin, botox causes the muscles in your face to relax by blocking the nerve signals sent by your body that tell them to contract when you do something like smiling or frowning. As a result, the appearance of lines and wrinkles can be greatly reduced, creating a naturally youthful glow and fresh-faced appearance.
