How Wrinkle Relaxers Work
Over time, the repeated use of your facial muscles causes the development of lines and wrinkes on the face. Their constant contraction can lead to an aged, angry, or fatigued appearance.
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles under the skin of your face, stopping them from causing any further wrinkles, and effectively smoothing over any that might have developed already. The results last up to four months, and don't involve surgery or downtime.
Botox can also be used to treat other issues, including severe sweating under the arms (a condition also known as hyperhidrosis), and is also effective when used for jaw reduction, due to its ability to reduce masseter muscle hyperactivity.
