Although a large number of women are curious about Botox®, they are absolutely terrified of the process. For some women, images of aging celebrities with shiny plastic faces devoid of any movement whatsoever come into mind when thinking about Botox. We’ve all witnessed beautiful Hollywood movie stars who begin to age and choose to relax the lines on their faces. One thing leads to another, and the next thing you know, these women are virtually unrecognizable, and not in a good way. They simply took the entire concept of injectables entirely too far.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox works by blocking the nerve receptors in the face so that your facial muscles will not contract and produce wrinkles. Therefore, Botox relaxes the facial muscles that create fine lines and wrinkles.

Does It Hurt?

Botox is administered to your face using fine needles, so it is slightly uncomfortable. However, Botox injections are relatively quick, so by the time the pain registers, it is over.
