How Does Botox Erase Wrinkles?

Once Botox is injected into the muscle, Botox will block chemical signals in the nerve causing the muscle to relax. This produces a result of relaxed facial expression and thus erases facial wrinkles.

When Botox is injected into the Trapezius muscle, it creates a longer-looking neck and slimmer, straighter shoulder.

Will I Age Quicker After I Use Botox?
This is a common myth. Fortunately, this concern is not valid. Botox reverses your signs of ageing, which is obviously by erasing the wrinkles. Once the Botox effect has worn off, your muscle will regain its full function as it was before Botox treatment. In fact, with continuous Botox usage, the muscle will function weaker when the Botox effect wears off, which means softer wrinkles even without Botox.
Using Botox even before the appearance of deep wrinkles will delay signs of ageing. If you want to prevent the earliest signs of fine lines, preventative Botox is the solution. Most experts agree that individuals in their late 20s to early 30s are at a good age for preventative Botox treatment.
Always consult with Doctors prior to treatment.
