What is Botox treatment for Face?

Botox is a protein produced by a bacterium, Clostridium botulinum, which can relax muscles.
Over time, as the sun damages your skin, the temporary wrinkles that form on your forehead when you move your facial muscles may become permanent, making you look stern, tired, or angry even when the underlying muscles are still. This happens because the sun degrades the skin so much that it loses its ability to “snap” back into place.

Botox relaxes the muscles under those wrinkles, thus smoothing out the brow. Botox injections may improve wrinkles on your facial area, improve depressed eyebrows, and it is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the underarms or hands. Botox is often used in conjunction with lasers and fillers to enhance the overall results of those treatments.

What is the treatment like?

Botox treatment for Face consists of a series of quick, tiny injections. No numbing anesthetic is needed, although you can request one if you’re worried about pain. Most treatments take less than 15 minutes. There’s no downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately, although you should avoid heavy physical exercise and lying down flat for at least 4 hours.

How long does Botox treatment for face last?

The results of BOTOX usually begin to appear within 3 to 7 days after treatment. Although it will vary from patient to patient, the effects tend to last up to 6 months. Follow-up treatments are then needed to keep wrinkles at bay. Some evidence suggests that repeated treatments extend the time that Botox stays effective.
