How Does Botox Work?

In order to understand how Botox can prevent wrinkles from forming, it is first instructive to understand how Botox works. Botox relaxes the muscles in your face and the overlying skin, preventing the skin from tensing up into folds when you make expressions. Wrinkles are formed by muscle contortions and folds in your skin over time, so the earlier you prevent these contractions the less likely you are to develop noticeable wrinkles and fine lines.

Can You Get Botox Before Turning 18?

We strongly dissuade anyone under the age of 18 to get Botox unless it is to treat a serious medical condition or medical problem. 18 is too young to use Botox, even as a preventative method.
