You’ve probably heard of Botox® — the country’s most popular injectable aesthetic treatment. But you might wonder how Botox works and why it’s so effective at minimizing wrinkles.

At New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa in Spring, Texas, our aesthetic providers have years of experience using safe and effective Botox to smooth your skin and rejuvenate your looks.

We know you have questions. To clarify how this popular cosmetic treatment works, take a moment to get a peek into the behind-the-scenes magic of Botox!

How Botox works its magic

Muscles in your face are why you can smile, frown, squint, raise eyebrows, and more. As you make these different facial expressions, your skin creases and folds.

Young skin is elastic and goes back into place quickly. However, as you age, your skin becomes less elastic.

That means wrinkles and lines will form in the places where your skin moves. This is where Botox comes in.

Botox uses a naturally occurring toxin, botulinum toxin, as an injectable neuromodulator. Neuromodulators block the signal between your nerves and muscles, making your muscles contract less.

Since your muscles are contracting less, your skin smooths. The result is softer fine lines and less visible wrinkles.

Why you’ll love using Botox to minimize wrinkles

Picking the proper treatment to diminish the visible signs of aging can be challenging. With so many options, knowing what’s best for you isn’t easy

The good news is that Botox is the most popular injectable neuromodulator year after year for good reason. Here’s why you’ll join the millions of Americans who love Botox:

Prevents deeper wrinkles

Botox not only does a fantastic job at smoothing wrinkles and fine lines you already have, but it also stops deeper lines and wrinkles from developing.

Treatments are quick

One thing our patients love about Botox is that it only takes about 15-20 minutes to get started with this injectable treatment. That means you can book an appointment at your convenience without needing to block off too much of your valuable time.

There’s no recovery needed

While other anti-aging treatments often require an invasive procedure, Botox allows you to return to most of your normal activities immediately. That makes it even easier to touch up your treatment.

You can trust the injection

Botox is the first FDA-approved neuromodulator, and millions of adults have used Botox for years. When administered by professional aesthetic providers, like our New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa team, Botox injections have few risks and many rewards.

Side effects are minimal

Botox has few side effects, and you can even avoid or minimize the more likely effects by following our pre- and post-Botox instructions carefully. Side effects may include injection-site bruising, redness, or swelling.

Results you’ll want to show off

Botox is the top injectable treatment because the results are amazing. People love the smoother and more youthful appearance they see after treatment, and we’re sure you will, too.

It’s important to remember that the results of a Botox treatment are technique-dependent, so you should only get injections from a trained aesthetic professional.
