How Does Botox Works?

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can't contract. That makes wrinkles relax and soften.

Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Botox won’t help with

wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity.

Botox Procedure


Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They're also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines. Botox injections use a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent a muscle from moving. This toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning. Botox was the first drug to use botulinum toxin. Other products now include abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport), rimabotulinumtoxinB (Myobloc) and incobotulinumtoxinA (Xeomin). Each is a little different, particularly when it comes to dosage units, so they aren't interchangeable.


Botox doesn’t make you look younger, it just makes you look smooth and shiny. @melicacy as beautiful as she is, trying out Dysport for the first time in her life.

Procedure Done?

Getting Botox takes only a few minutes. You won’t need anesthesia. The provider uses a small needle to inject Botox into specific muscles with only minor discomfort.


It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect. It’s best to avoid alcohol starting at least 1 week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications 2 weeks before treatment to help prevent bruising.


Avoid rubbing the injection site for 24 hours so you don’t spread the Botox to another area. Your doctor may also tell you to stay upright for 4 hours after the shots and to take a day off from exercising.

How Long Does a Botox Shot Last?

The effects from Botox will last 3 to 6 months. As muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.

Get Botox?

People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease shouldn’t use Botox. Because Botox doesn't work for all wrinkles, check with a doctor first.

You shouldn’t have Botox shots if you’re allergic to cow’s milk protein.

Some Reviews of


I have came over and try the jaw reduction botox as the muscles on my cheeks is really getting on my nerve . Doctor Jason was the one who attended to me, he was very meticulous and explains the procedure to make sure I understand well. He also made an assessment before doing the botox on me.
Initially I was a little worried of the injections as this is the first aesthetic surgery I have done. But i am really surprise by how fast and painless the procedure was conducted.
I would definitely recommend the clinic and doctor Jason for their professionalism and friendly service.
