How Does Botox Work?

Given in small amounts, Botox enhances a person’s appearance by relaxing muscles that create wrinkles and folds.

A combination of factors can create facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that might happen, the decrease in collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the environment and UV rays.
Continual muscle contractions from squinting, raising eyebrows, or frowning cause skin to wrinkle and crease, steadily resulting in the development of facial lines. Botox works under the surface to diminish the underlying muscle activity that produces crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, helping you to look better.

What is Botox?

If you’ve never had Botox before, you might be thinking if it’s the right choice for you. Let’s look at some frequent questions people have about this treatment that helps you achieve your desired look with fewer wrinkles and lines.
Botox is a drug made from a toxin generated by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Even though it’s a toxin, Botox possesses numerous medical and cosmetic uses when administered properly and in the correct dosage. For aging skin, it stops nerve signals from telling your facial muscles to contract. Botox aids the muscles in relaxing, helping to lessen folds and wrinkles.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox goes under the surface of your skin to visibly enhance the appearance of wrinkles. It is quite successful in treating several usual signs of aging including:
Frown lines: Lessens the look of vertical lines between your eyebrows
Crow’s feet: Provides a refreshing eye look by diminishing crow’s feet
Upper lips: Lowers your lip line, forming a fuller-looking lip, getting rid of the “gummy” smile
Forehead lines: Flattens the horizontal, deep lines that develop on your forehead


Your medical professional utilizes a thin needle to inject small amounts of the toxin beneath your skin and into your muscles. Botox can cause muscle paralysis by obstructing muscle nerve neurotransmitters. It loosens the muscle so that it gets soft and limp. As a result, the overlying skin becomes smooth.
Maximum results may be seen in as little as seven days after a Botox injection. It differs for every patient, based on several factors including:
Your gender
Your age
Your muscle masses
Your skin’s elasticity
The type of Botox used
The amount of the Botox injection

Is Botox Safe?

Botox can be lethal in large doses. However, the small amounts used in injections are quite safe when performed by a trained professional. There aren’t any life-threatening or long-term negative effects when giving the proper dose for a cosmetic treatment.
As with any plastic surgery, there is a more subtle answer. Botox wears off after 10 to 24 weeks, so it’s normal to want to refresh your Botox. With extended use, Botox could result in an under-animated face.
The best way to prevent this is to get injections of Botox at a Highlands Ranch established spa by a qualified medical professional who can give you the right amount to produce a natural-looking appearance. Get in touch with us today for smoother skin and a youthful appearance.
