Although Botox treatment is toxic, it has been used safely and extensively by ophthalmologists for more than a decade. Botox has been used to treat wrinkles since the early 1990s, and no serious side effects have been documented.
Botox for big frown lines works by relaxing the muscles that make wrinkles, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines, or laugh lines. Botox is injected into the muscle and after the botox injection, you will not be able to frown, which will eliminate the wrinkles or lines caused by the facial expressions.
Botox treatment removes wrinkles caused by overuse of facial muscles, a protein toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Considered by many to be "the ultimate source of youth", Botox injections are more popular than breast augmentation and are likely to be the next big thing.
To work, a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscle that makes the wrinkles. Botox works by deactivating these muscles, causing wrinkles to disappear or be greatly reduced.
Botox treatment lasts three to six months and is done fairly quickly. Once the effect wears off, you can come back for another injection. The effects have been reported to last longer after multiple injections and can last for several months.
