The Many Benefits of Botox
Botox is already used in a variety of medical procedures which include treating migraines, eye twitch problems, and severe sweating. But for what it's most well known is its ability to set back the clock on your skin without the need for surgery. The effects are almost immediate, you'll notice results in just days after the treatment which takes only minutes to complete. Results that can last for months.
How It Works
Many of the more noticeable signs of aging are due to the muscles beneath our skin being overactive. These muscles are those we most often use in our most repeated expressions. Such as when we laugh, smile, frown, or squint, these muscles can make the fine lines much more prominent and it is these that Botox targets. The treatment relaxes them by interrupting the signals they receive and thus eliminating a lot of the wrinkles they can cause.

The most common concern with Botox is that it might affect our ability to express, but under the right hands, the treatment merely reduces how pronounced fine lines are while we laugh or smile. Most people who are healthy are candidates for Botox, but consult with your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, and if you are possibly allergic to any of its ingredients.
