How Exactly Does Botox Work?

By November 4, 2019 No Comments

You’ve most likely heard of Botox–the popular injectable that treats fine lines and wrinkles–and wondered how it works. Botox is a type of injectable known as a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators block neuron impulses that tell the facial muscles to constrict or react. 

When you move your face through laughing, raising your eyebrows, or any other facial movement, these repeated movements can cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. This is where Botox comes in. 

After Botox injections, when you perform these movements, the facial muscles do not respond in the same way. By relaxing your muscles, Botox can soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent the formation of new ones. 

A form of botulinum toxin A, Botox is not a permanent treatment. Within a few months, you will need another round of injections. This ensures the safety of injecting Botox, but with continued use, you may notice that new wrinkles are not forming. 

You never have to worry about an unnatural look when your Botox injections are performed or supervised by Dr. Jonov. We also offer Botox with our qualified Nurse Injectors for a reduced price. Our Nurse Injectors all trained directly under our doctor and provide the same great results.
