How Do Botox Injections Work?

Botox reduces fine lines and wrinkles, known as expression lines. A form of dynamic wrinkling, expression lines are grooves created in the skin after years of repetitive muscle movements. These movements are involved in facial expressions like smiling, frowning, or squinting. They typically accumulate towards the upper portion of the face. They include brow lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

Botox injections consist of a protein known as Botulinum Toxin. When injected, Botox acts as a neuromodulator. It blocks the signals that cause muscles to contract. This relaxes the muscle that is wrinkling the overlying skin. The relaxed muscle elongates, allowing the skin to smooth back out.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

Every treatment is tailored to the goals, the body, and the budget of each patient. Therefore, Botox cost varies. Prices depend on the treatment location, the number of vials required, and the aesthetic goals of the individual.

Botox Results

When performed by professionals, Botox results look natural and preserve facial expression. A reduction in wrinkling appears with 24 to 48 hours after the injections. While individual experiences may vary, most patients enjoy their results for 3 to 5 months. *

Botox is not permanent. Within a few months, the Botox breaks down. The body safely absorbs the biodegradable protein.

Botox for Younger Adults

Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment among young adults in their 20s and 30s. This generation continues to turn to cosmetic treatments, not in reaction to the signs of aging, but as a preventative measure. Preventative Botox treatments are clinically proven to prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkling.

According to JAMA Dermatology, initiating treatments with adults in their 20s and 30s will “have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the face as seen in the person’s 40s or 50s. There will be few if any, imprinted lines of facial expression present.” ²

Botox’s ability to prevent wrinkling is demonstrated by a longitudinal study that compared identical twins. One twin received Botox injections regularly in her twenties and early thirties. The other twin did not. After 13 years, the twins were compared. The twin who received preventative treatments demonstrated markedly less wrinkling. This led the researchers to conclude, “Long-term treatment with Botox can prevent the development of imprinted facial lines that are visible at rest. Botox treatment can also reduce crow’s feet.” ³
