What are the benefits of Botox injections?
The idea behind using Botox is that it works on any kind of muscle spasms – if there is trouble contracting or redacting muscles, the injections can help. When the medication has been delivered in the correct manner and in precise dosage, the contractions will stop and this will reduce the appearance of fine lines, which in other words are known as wrinkles. These lines could be on any part of the face and the results will become visible within a few days’ time.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of using Botox is the fact that the results are temporary and hence cannot cause any long term damages. However, it is important that each of the injections is spaced properly, ideally 4-6 months apart.
How visible is the change?
The change will be very visible and the same should happen within 3-7 days, but you need to remember that the same will last only for a few months. After this, you will have to get another dose.
