How does Botox® work?
The brain will send out messages to the muscles in accordance with different emotions, offering commands to perform different facial expressions. Facial muscles contract and create expressions after receiving neuro-transmitted messages from the brain and expression lines will be formed. Long-term contraction of such muscles may cause the appearance of skin folds and finally the formation of wrinkles.
As BOTOX® is a type of neurotransmitter antagonist, when Botox® is injected, the connection between the nerves and muscles is blocked. Muscles that lead to expression lines will be relaxed and our skin will regain the state of smoothness, reaching the effect of wrinkle improvement.
It should be noted that this treatment requires to be performed by registered doctors, and relevant risks should be understood clearly before the treatment. If there is any problem before or after the treatment, consultation with the attending medical practitioner is necessary.
