5 Fascinating Facts About BOTOX®

Good skin care practices can help you maintain a youthful, radiant appearance at any age. Routine cleansing, moisturizing and wearing sun screen are all reliable skin care practices. However, if you really want to give your appearance a youthful boost, you might consider BOTOX®.

What You Need to Know About BOTOX®

Most people have heard about BOTOX® through the media. Here are seven things you may not know about this skin care revolution.

1. BOTOX® Isn’t a Filler

Some people confuse BOTOX® with other skin care products that are generically called fillers. However, BOTOX® works quite differently in that it essentially relaxes and softens the muscles it’s injected into. When those muscles lose the ability to contract, lines and wrinkles smooth away.

2. It’s Used Most Often on the Forehead

BOTOX® is used as a skin care solution mostly on the forehead’s glabellar, or frown, lines. It may also be used on crow’s feet.

3. Quick Skin Care Treatments

Having BOTOX® injected requires little time. A very small needle is used to inject into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It can generally take three to seven days to see the full benefits. It’s best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.

4. Lasting Results

Although BOTOX® does not grant permanent results, it can last about three to four months. Many people experience the effects for a bit longer, so having this skin care treatment done two or three times a year is enough for the average user.

5. BOTOX® Prevents Wrinkles

When the muscles that frequently cause lines and wrinkles are relaxed, they don’t have an opportunity to create more or deeper creases. So, while BOTOX® helps smooth away existing wrinkles, it is also preventing you from creating more of them.

  1. My mother-in-law has been thinking about getting botox for some time now. She wants to research more about it before having it done. I didn’t know that, like you point out, botox prevents wrinkles. I think she would be very happy to hear that!

  2. I had always thought that Botox was a filler. Turns out that it’s a nerve number! It sounds like a pretty good option for getting rid of wrinkles to me. My wife has actually been looking into this recently, so I will show her this.
