Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It is typically used in people aged 18 to 65. Botox works by blocking nerve transmission to temporarily reduce the contractions of the facial muscles that cause frown lines.
It has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, and botox injections are becoming increasingly popular.
Who can have Botox treatment?
Your doctor will decide if you can have cosmetic treatment with botox.
Your doctor will administer several tiny injections of botox directly into the muscles of your face. Prior to injection, your doctor will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area.
The entire botox injection procedure takes approximately 3 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
You should notice an improvement in your frown lines within 3 to 7 days, the effects of which can last up to 4 months. However, results may vary.
After a period of time, your frown lines will begin to reappear as the effects of botox wear off.
How often can Botox injections be given?
You can receive botox injections every 6 months.
