How does botox help?

When lines and wrinkles mar your face and make you look older, botox makes the skin smoother and more youthful looking. This injectable neurotoxin paralyses the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. It works on forehead furrows, frown lines, nose to mouth lines, wrinkles around ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­the eyes, neck bands and even helps with gummy smiles. Botox has many other apart from the cosmetic aspect, such as for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Since only injections are used in minuscule quantities, the cosmetic treatment is minimally invasive. Results can take three days to a week to show up and will last for a few months. You can go in for repeat treatments when required.
