Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin. It’s a neuromodulator that blocks messages from traveling between your brain and the small muscles under your facial skin. This causes temporary and controlled paralysis.
As you get older, your body makes less collagen and elastin, which are the skin fibers that help your skin bounce back after you make a facial expression. As a result, your skin becomes dry and gets stuck in the folds and creases that occur when you smile or frown.
As the Botox injection relaxes your facial muscles, the skin covering them also releases and smooths out your fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.

In most cases, Botox appointments only take 15-30 minutes. Your aesthetic specialist cleanses your skin and examines your face, marking the injection sites. If your skin is sensitive, you can apply a cold compress or a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort during your injections.
Your aesthetic specialist makes the injections using a small needle and syringe. Botox begins to work immediately, but it will take around 24 hours for your skin to look more smooth and free of lines.
Your body will eventually process the Botox, and your lines and wrinkles will reappear. You can schedule routine Botox appointments at Beyond Women's Care to maintain your smooth and youthful appearance. Over time, regular Botox injections train your muscles to relax, and you can have longer intervals between your touch-up appointments.
Your specialist gives you customized aftercare instructions following your appointment. However, in general, you should avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after your injections. You should also always take care to wear sunscreen and limit your sun exposure, as the ultraviolet rays in sunlight contribute to skin damage and wrinkles.
