How Does Botox Work

botox over timeThe process is fairly simple.

A few drops of Botox are injected with a small needle into the muscle (usually in the forehead) that creates a wrinkle.  When Botox is injected into the muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area. As the muscle relaxes the skin overlying the muscle smooths and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear from visibility. This is not permanent, but lasts for a few months.
