As we age, wrinkles appear because of the repetitive contraction of facial muscles. Botox works by relaxing these muscles and decreasing stress on the deep layers of the skin. We all know that Botox is the best treatment for wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet, but can it actually prevent those stubborn lines in the first place?

Prevent Wrinkles with Botox

More and more women in their mid to late 20’s are turning to Botox to prevent permanent wrinkles, and they may not be as crazy as you might think 🙂

A recent study published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery looked at the long-term effect of Botox on facial lines in identical twins. One of the twins received regular Botox injections to her glabellar region (aka the area between your eyes), forehead, and crow’s feet for 13 years. At the end of the study, the twin who received Botox looked younger and did not have the visible glabellar and forehead lines that the “non-botoxed” twin had. There was also a significant reduction of crow’s feet on the twin who received treatment.

How long do Botox injections take?

Botox injections are very fast and very easy! The entire procedure from start to finish takes about 15 minutes, and you can jump right back into your day after you finish.

How long before Botox starts to work?

It usually takes 3-5 days for the full effect of Botox. You’ll know when it starts to work when you start to feel a slight tight sensation in the area that was injected.

How long does Botox last?

Botox treatments last 3-6 months. If you are getting Botox for the first time, your first few treatments will likely last closer to the 6-month mark.
