Botox is an injectable neurotoxin with a myriad of applications in aesthetics and other medical disciplines. The active ingredient in Botox is called botulinum toxin and works by paralyzing your muscles temporarily. More specifically, it blocks the nerve signals that tell your muscles to flex.
Since your wrinkles form because of overworked muscles, they subside when the muscles below them can no longer contract.
Botox works as a solution for wrinkles for three months or more at a time. If you’re happy with your results and want to maintain them, you can book maintenance appointments at Forever Young Complete Healthcare to keep enjoying your younger appearance.
