How Does Botox Work?

Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that is popular around the world. While many people are familiar with Botox and the results it produces, many are unaware of how Botox actually works. Botox is a neuromodulator which works by relaxing muscle movement.

Wrinkles in the face are often caused by years of overactive muscle use and Botox prevents wrinkles from forming by blocking muscle movement. Fine lines and wrinkles that form from smiling, laughing, smoking, or frowning can be treated with strategically placed Botox injections.

What Results Can I Expect from Botox?

Botox is a virtually painless treatment that comes with a low risk of side effects when performed by a board-certified dermatologist at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego. Botox injections require no downtime and patients can return to their normal daily activities right after the treatment is completed. Patients don’t have to worry about bleeding, bruising, or pain after their injections. For most patients, only one treatment session is required in order to get the desired results. Patients will notice a difference in their appearance after only a few days! While San Diego Botox is not a permanent wrinkle solution, touch ups can be done after the effects have worn off.

Who Should Perform Botox Injections?

Botox should only be performed by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon as they are the most trained and qualified to do so. While Botox injections are quick and painless, they are still medical procedures that should only be performed by a medical professional. Undergoing San Diego Botox injections at a spa, salon, or friend’s house is dangerous and involves serious risks. An unqualified injector can cause undesired results and even paralysis. It is always safest to find a board-certified and experienced doctor to perform Botox injections.
