What Exactly is Botox Cosmetic Injections?
Botox is an injectable toxin used to block the activities of the nerves in the muscles around the site of injection. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available that does not require surgery. Studies have shown that approximately six million men and women receive cosmetic Botox injections each year. Those who receive cosmetic Botox injections are happy with the results, but it’s important to avoid potential risks by consulting with and receiving the injections from a reputable physician, at A Family & Wellness Center.
How Does Botox Cosmetic Injections Remove Wrinkles?
Botox injections work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are in and around the site of the injection. Botox blocks the signals that are sent from the nerves to the muscles, which prevents the muscle from contracting, resulting in wrinkles that relax and soften. The amount used to treat cosmetic conditions is extremely small in order to prevent the risk of poisoning from the toxin. Because the amount is so tiny, it may take more than one treatment before you see optimum results.
