Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by everyday life. Some lines are a result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles near your eyebrows contract, causing your skin to fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can stay and be seen long even after the muscles are at rest. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Botox treatment reduces muscle activity that causes the lines to form around the brows (results may vary).
You may feel that your “Frown lines” between your brows make you look tired or unapproachable, or you experience “Crow’s feet”, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes or Forehead. These are the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows or you may have other reasons for being curious about Botox treatments.
Best of all, getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia.
