Before & After
Botox is a neurotoxin composed of botulinum toxin type A, popularity used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles, like crow’s feet and forehead lines, appear because of extensive muscle contractions around the eyes. You get crow’s feet when you squint or laugh, frown lines occur between your eyebrows when you concentrate, and forehead lines appear when you raise your eyebrows.
Botox blocks communication between specifically targeted nerve endings and the targeted facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, leading to temporary muscle relaxation and paralysis. That’s how Botox reduces the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles.
You can resume most of your daily activities immediately after getting Botox injections, but you must follow your doctor’s recovery guidelines. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and redness around the injection sites for approximately three days. You should apply a cold compress for 20 minutes an hour after the injections, take the prescribed painkillers, and avoid strenuous activities for about 6 hours. Aside from those precautions, you can resume most daily activities.
