Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles underneath the skin, which smooths out wrinkles and lines.

Factors Behind its Surge in Popularity

Botox has become so trendy due to several factors. Firstly, it is a minimally-invasive treatment that can provide quick and noticeable results. Additionally, celebrities and influencers openly discussing their use of Botox has helped to de-stigmatize the procedure and make it more socially acceptable. Botox has also become more widely available and affordable, making it more accessible to people who previously may not.

Target Areas

It is injected into specific areas of the face, crow’s feet, bunny lines and frown-lines as well as
other areas such as the forehead and chin.

How long does it last?

You may start seeing the effects of Botox within a few days, but full results may take up to two
weeks. The effects of Botox typically last three to six months, after which you may need
another injection to maintain your results.


Botox injections are performed in a sterile environment and take only a few minutes. The
professional at aesthetology360 will use a small, fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox
into specific muscles in the treatment area. The number and location of injections will depend
on your individual needs and the severity of your wrinkles.

After the injection, you are asked to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for a few
hours to prevent the Botox from spreading to other areas. You may also be advised not to lie
down or exercise vigorously for a few hours after the injection.
