Botox is used to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. FDA-approved botox is a medication that is injected into your facial muscles to soften wrinkles and fine lines. The injections are quick, relatively painless and do not require down time. Improvement can be expected within 72 hours with optimal results within two weeks and can last months. The lines and wrinkles gradually return with muscle action and wrinkles may need to be re-treated.
Positives: Real noticeable results, no recovery time, non-surgical.
How: Botox relaxes movement around the areas it is injected into, temporarily reducing muscle activity which lead to wrinkles and therefore decrease the visibility of those lines.
