Frequently Asked Questions About Botox Treatments

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is a "neuromodulator" (a type of botulinum toxin type A) that is injected into selected areas of treatment using a very small needle. Basically, how it works is by blocking signals to the nerves needed for your facial muscles to contract. When your face repeatedly contracts its facial muscles it leads to the wrinkle and lines. Once the botox treatment is applied, the neuromodulator relaxes these facial muscles and slows and lessens their movement to help reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the treated areas. Results will be visible in roughly three to seven days following the botox treatments.
