Botox injections have become immensely popular in the health and beauty world for their quick and effective results for people who are dealing with unsightly wrinkles that are generally associated with aging.
Botox treatments are completely safe, have been thoroughly tested, and are approved by the FDA. Consider Botox injections if you have any one or combination of the following cosmetic concerns:
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Forehead lines
How Do Botox Treatments Work?
Botox injections are a minimally-invasive targeted treatment, meaning, you as
the patient will identify your problem areas for the injection specialist to target. As previously mentioned, most patients want to target crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, or glabellar lines located in the forehead.
A Botox injection or series of injections essentially relaxes the targeted muscle and reduces its overall activity, thus, leading to the smoothing away of frown lines, wrinkles, and so forth.
To delve deeper into the science behind Botox, the injections themselves consist of Botulinum toxin, which prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction.
This causes a targeted relaxation in the tissues of the eyes, mouth, or forehead – the effects of which will last for several months until it eventually wears off.
Fortunately, Botox is a form of treatment that can be administered again as needed with no risk of negative side effects.
Botox treatments are available in Kansas City and Lawrence through Regain Functional Medicine.
