Mode of action
Botox is a prescription medicine, which is injected into your muscles and used to cover up frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
So how does it work? Botox injections are weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or blocking certain nerves. Depending on what you are treating, the effects can last three to twelve months. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids.
Usual injection places include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin.
The product is most effective on creases that haven’t quite set yet. It is also very effective on dynamic wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. If you don’t move the muscle too much, you won’t form the wrinkle. Botox is considered to be preventive.
