As we age, daily activities that contract facial muscles – such as smiling, squinting and chewing – eventually contribute to wrinkles along the edges of the mouth, eyes, and other regions. The wrinkles can create an unwanted tired, angry or weathered look.
Botox Cosmetic is one the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market and has become synonymous with all injectable procedures. Its popularity and place in pop culture escalated because it offers people a convenient non-surgical method of reducing facial wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic is a purified substance derived from bacteria. It prevents targeted muscles from contracting by interrupting the signals in the nerve endings, which subsequently eliminates their wrinkling effect.
Since the face has 43 muscles, Botox injections can be customized to target specific problem areas using various dosages. The procedure often takes less than 15 minutes, and you will notice results within a few days that can last anywhere from three to four months!
