Botox cosmetic is an FDA-approved muscle relaxer that temporarily freezes or paralyzes facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines through repeated muscle contractions over the course of many years. Following the Botox treatment, the muscles begin to relax and the wrinkles and fine lines diminish. Results can be seen within 24-48 hours and can last up to 4 months. Most Botox treatments are completed within 30 minutes, and being injected feels like a small pinch. Finally, there is no recovery time necessary, so you can continue with your daily routine as soon as you finish your treatment.
