How is Botox used?
A trained professional administers a very small amount of a Botox injection to your facial muscles. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that are responsible for causing the wrinkles and fine lines on our faces. The injection is administered using a fine needle into specific muscles and does not take more than a few minutes or local anesthesia. The results are visible in as little as 2 weeks.
Results and precautions
The results of a Botox injection are visible in as little as 2 weeks and can last up to 4 months. Since the muscles causing the lines will become tense again gradually, a Botox injection will need to be readministered. However, since this trains your muscles to relax the line will become less severe over time. Since the number of sittings needed varies from person to person, please consult your dentist to know about the number of sittings that you may require to reduce fine lines and wrinkles from your face.
After a Botox treatment, it is advised to refrain from strenuous activities for 24 hours. You can continue with your normal day-to-day activities.
