How Does Botox® Work
October 13, 2022
Botox is the brand name for an injectable form of Botulinum Toxin, which is made by Allergan. It is a neurotoxin that is created by a bacteria called Clostridium Botulin, which is found in nature.
Is it safe?
This might sound quite scary, but Botox® has been extensively tested and has been found to be relatively safe when injected by trained professionals.
How Does Botox Work?
When Botox® is injected into the body, it is able to block nerve signals that normally cause muscles to contract. As a result, the muscles in the areas where the Botox® has been injected will start to relax.
When your muscles relax, the appearance of wrinkles is greatly diminished and many people find that they disappear altogether.
The effects of Botox® will typically last for between three and six months, after which the effects start to wear off and muscles will start to contract again, which means that wrinkles may start to appear once again too.

When you get Botox® in Northville Mi, your injector will usually start by applying an anesthetic cream to the part of your body that you are having Botox® injections in. This is used to help numb the pain from the injection, although most people do not find that this procedure hurts too much.
Once the numbing agent has taken effect, which should not take longer than a few minutes, the injector will make a number o injections into your skin, depending on how much Botox® you require.
Once the injections are over with, the injector or aesthetician will talk to you about what you should and should not do in the days after your treatment, and you should follow their instructions to the letter if possible.
When will Botox® in Michigan take effect?

Will I need multiple treatments?
Yes, as mentioned above, Botox® injections have a typical lifespan of three to six months, which means, if you want to keep wrinkles at bay, you will need to have regular top-up treatments of Botox® in Detroit to keep your muscles relaxed and ensure that your skin is as smooth as possible.
