How Does Botox Work?
In each treatment, Botox is injected directly into the muscle. After the injection, the medication reaches the muscle, and it blocks the nerve impulses. Following that, the muscle activity that causes persistent lines to form is temporarily eliminated. Therefore, frown lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, in the treatment areas, begin to smoothen. In conclusion, Botox has been chosen by millions of people around the world to obtain a more youthful appearance.
