Botox is a substance that causes relaxation of facial muscles. When injected into certain areas of the face, it allows muscles to relax, thereby lessening the appearance of wrinkles. For example, Botox treatments have been shown to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, which are lines that form around the outside corners of the eyes. It can also reduce the appearance of frown lines, as well as the horizontal furrows that develop on the forehead, and which become more visible when the eyebrows are raised.
Before having Botox injections, it’s important to fully understand the procedure and its likely results. A consultation with a qualified professional may help a person understand these effects, as well as the minimal risks associated with the treatment. Individuals should be aware that the results of Botox are temporary, typically lasting between three months and one year in some cases. In order to maintain the effects, subsequent treatments are required.
