Botox injections are a type of treatment that is performed by injecting small quantities of Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX) into specific muscles. BOTOX blocks the nerve impulse from the nerves to the muscles; in turn, paralyzing the injected muscle and decreasing any future movement.
Most people cannot identify when the injection has been given because it’s so localized. A numbing cream is typically used before to numb the skin where injections will be administered. The effects are not felt for four-six months and should not last for more than six months.
“The injections are administered by a certified doctor and with the use of a fine needle, the Botox is injected into specific muscles. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and doesn’t involve any cutting or bleeding. The treatment can be repeated 3 months after the first injection and is given to address age-related changes.”
Botox is injected as a way to smooth out wrinkles in the skin. It takes about 10 minutes with no cutting or bleeding involved. The Botox procedures can be repeated every 3 months for up to 18 months.”
