Botox is used for variety of cosmetic purposes, including reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Botox decreases the visibility of facial wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscles underneath. The more you use these muscles, the deeper your lines will be, particularly laugh lines and frown lines. Botox has been used successfully as a cosmetic injectable since the 1990s.
Botox and other fillers are injected in-office, meaning a hospital or surgical center is not needed, nor is general anesthesia. During the procedure for Botox, it is injected into your muscles, deactivating them. This process is fast and pain free. The smoothing out of lines and wrinkles can take a few days to notice, but results last for up to three to six months, after which your surgeon will see you for a follow-up injection. The more injections you have over time, the longer the results of each may last. Most people are candidates with the exception of individuals who are pregnant, have a neurological disease, or are breastfeeding.
