Botox: How Does It Work?

Author: Groupon

Mankind could solve the energy crisis if we knew how to bottle the rage felt by women who get called “ma’am” before their time. If you just got ma’amed, chances are dynamic wrinkles are to blame. Dynamic wrinkles are the fine, shallow lines that appear in your 20s and 30s, then slowly take over your entire face. They’re caused by frowning, smiling, laughing, grimacing–basically making a face of any kind. Over time, all that expressing yourself etches lines into your forehead, crows’ feet around your eyes, and elevens–those two lines that show up when you remember that someday the sun will explode. Getting botox injections is one way to slow down the runaway train of aging.

Put simply, botox injections block the release of a neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract. The result is a three-to-four-month vacation for your face’s face-making muscles. During this time, your dynamic wrinkles have time to fade, which can help slow down the aging process. After three or four months, the Botox will wear off and you can go back to all that rapid-fire expressing you love. Botox was first used on people who suffered from crossed eyes; injecting overactive ocular muscles helped correct their vision.

Today, botox is used to treat not just wrinkles, but a wide range of conditions, from migraines to excessive sweating.
