How Does Botox Work?
Certain facial muscles are repeatedly used to form the same facial expressions and movements, creating wrinkles in the skin. Botox is a neuromodulator composed of botulinum toxin. It blocks the nerve signals responsible for facial muscle contraction. This allows muscles to relax, smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles.

Botox is recommended for patients with fine lines and wrinkles. Patients whose stiff facial muscles need to relax and get back to their ideal resting state are excellent candidates for Botox treatment.
Candidates should have realistic expectations. Ideal candidates are willing to come in for maintenance treatments for lasting results.
