I am 39 years old and have never worn much make-up nor have I ever been very concerned with my appearance. I guess I felt I always looked good just the way I am. Now I have noticed, and a couple people have commented on, the vertical lines in my forehead above my nose. I would like to get Botox injections to smooth those lines. Are the effects seen right away? Is Botox used regularly on other parts of the face?
Botox effects can take anywhere from 12 hours after injection to almost 7 days. I have had patients return to me after 10 days and tell me they still see it starting to work. Botox can be placed in many areas of the face including the frown lines, the forehead, the crows feet and even the neck lines. Botox can also be used to reduce sweating in patents who over perspire.
