Botox 101

There are many different kinds of cosmetic surgery Delaware, and they are all done for different reasons. Some are done as reconstructive surgeries after a surgery or accident, like a breast augmentation after a mastectomy. However, there are some people who get cosmetic surgeries because they miss their old selves, youthful-looking and wrinkle-free. Some procedures aren’t necessarily invasive either! Some only involve a needle and 10-15 minutes, like Botox.


Botox has a reputation for causing people to look like mannequins, emotionless and smooth. It does smooth out wrinkles, but it doesn’t always make you look so stiff. It’s meant to smooth out moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Botox relaxes the muscles in your face, many of which are used hundreds of times a day and with many different expressions. It doesn’t impact the nerves or make you feel numb, and can even give you a subtle brow lift.

Along with smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, this injection can also help with lazy eyes, excessive sweating, chronic and frequent migraines, bladder dysfunction, and eye twitching.
