EXPERT Q&A

Q: How does Botox actually work? Is it safe?

What our experts say:

It is extremely safe. It lifts slightly and gets rid of the lines and wrinkles caused by flexing facial muscles by relaxing them. It makes the face look refreshed and the eyes look more open and less tired.

It's a muscle paralytic, and it is safe when it is used correctly. Make sure you use BOTOX Cosmetic rather than a black market product; and make sure it is used appropriately. Do not overdose.
