Botox stops the transmission of chemicals that tell muscles to move

You have probably heard of Botox and may even know someone who has had it, but it is important to understand how Botox works before getting it done yourself. When you get botox treatments, the doctor will inject a small amount of botulinum toxin into the target area. This toxin is called a neurotoxin, meaning it is a substance that impairs the function of the nerves. 

That said, Botox stops the nerves in your facial muscles from sending certain chemical signals that allow the muscles to contract. So for the few months before the toxin wears off, the muscles beneath your wrinkles remain frozen in a position that stretches and smooths them. 

Botox will relax muscle action to reduce wrinkles

Wrinkles form over time from years of facial expressions. When you move your face to smile, frown, or squint at the sun, the muscle movement stretches your skin and forms various folds and creases. 

As you age, your skin produces less collagen, which helps give it elasticity and structure. The skin can no longer return to its original texture, and as a result, the creases caused by facial expressions become more and more permanent.

When you receive Botox injections, the toxin relaxes your muscles enough so that your skin can no longer form this crease. This helps smooth out the wrinkles that have already formed, which gives a more youthful appearance. 

Botox is primarily used to treat traverse forehead wrinkles

Forehead lines are one of the most common places people get botox treatments, partly because it is an area where wrinkles are easily noticeable. These wrinkles run horizontally across your forehead, usually making them the largest wrinkles on someone’s face. 

Anti-aging serums and lotions can be relatively ineffective for these deep-set lines, especially if you have severe wrinkles. Instead of wasting your money trying all of the latest serums promising to erase your wrinkles, Botox injections are a quick, easy treatment that works to reduce these stubborn wrinkles.

FAQs for Botox in Atlanta

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment most commonly used to smooth the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles temporarily. Botox injections also treat some medical conditions, including chronic migraines and excessive underarm sweating. The injections are made of small doses of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which is injected into the target area using a very small needle.

How does Botox work?

The neurotoxin that Botox cosmetic treatments are made of works by blocking certain signals from your nerves so that the muscles stop contracting. When you make facial expressions such as smiling, squinting, or frowning, your skin moves with your facial muscles. Over time, these movements create deep creases and lines, most commonly known as wrinkles. Botox freezes the muscles so that the skin becomes lifted and smoothed.

What areas of the body can get Botox treatment?

Botox can be used to treat a variety of areas of the body, and it is not always injected into the face. The most common areas that form wrinkles are also the most common areas where doctor inject botox, which include the following.

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Smoker’s lines (perioral lines)
  • Marionette Lines (mouth corners)
  • Neck bands
  • Sagging eyebrows

In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox can be injected into other areas of the body to treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines, TMJ pain, and excessive armpit sweating.

This place is a whole VIBE! When I walked in, I immediately felt at ease. It smells amazing in there, and not an overwhelming sent....its very subtle, yet smells like luxury. They offer you wine or infused water while you wait. I felt like the man. LOL. The place is beautiful. They walked me to my treatment room and it was so nice. They offered me a blanket and it was so soft. I seen Karin and she was amazing! She told me what she was doing each step of the way. I got a HydraFacial, dermaplane, and she removed ingrown hairs from my beard. When I got up my skin was the TRUTH! I will make it a point to add this to my self care routine.
