What Does Botox® Do?
As you advance in age, wrinkles and furrows can develop on your face. These lines can make your face look angry, tired, or sad making you appear older than you feel. One of the main causes of frown lines is over-active muscles in your brow. Botox reduces the activity of these muscles that cause wrinkles thereby improving your appearance. Best results usually occur 3 to 7 days after injection, and commonly last somewhere between 3-4 months. Thus, repeat injections are required to maintain the effects. The most common but unlikely side effects are redness and minor swelling at the injection site.
