Botox

 
  Botox is a naturally-occurring chemical that relaxes muscles. It is injected under the skin using an ultrafine needle. This causes the muscles to relax and the overlying skin to relax with it. Within a few weeks, the wrinkles that have been creased into the skin begin to disappear. The extent to which muscles relax is controlled by the dosage.  
     
  Here in New Zealand we seldom do the "frozen expression" look, just aiming for a naturally more youthful, relaxed look. Each dose lasts 3-4 months. I'm often asked, "so if I stop taking Botox, will I age more rapidly?" The answer is no: if you have Botox for 5 years then stop taking it, you'll have save yourself 5 years of wrinkles and won't "catch up" with your chronological age.
