Will Botox Make my face Numb?

Botox isn't designed to make your face numb. It softens lines of excessive facial expressions that you get from smiling, grow in, squinting, etc. It relaxes the nerves to remove lines and wrinkles but never makes the face numb.

Does Botox Prevent Wrinkles?

Yes, Botox prevents wrinkles. It temporarily relaxes your muscles to prevent the formation of wrinkles and remove the wrinkles already present. When injected it slows muscles that contract to cause these wrinkles hence the potential for future wrinkles is reduced.
