As time marches on, we all see the effects of aging. Unfortunately, our face is what usually takes the brunt of this process. Wrinkles, sagging, crow’s feet, and frown lines are all part of the process. The good news is that Botox is a proven method that lessens the signs of aging. The process is very simple, and it can have you looking more youthful and vibrant after just one treatment.
What Is Botox and How Does It Work?
Botox is a botulinum toxin injection that is injected directly into the muscles of areas that have wrinkles and fine lines. The toxin blocks nerve signals and temporarily relaxes facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to appear.
Which Parts Of The Face Best Respond To Botox?
While Botox can be used on nearly every area of the face, some areas are more responsive than others.
Wrinkles usually begin on the forehead because the muscles are almost in constant use. These prominent lines between the eyebrows can often make you look older. Botox treatments can diminish those lines and give your face an overall more youthful look that lasts for several months. No anesthesia is needed and there is no downtime.
Botox works exceptionally well around the corners of the eyes; the lines that form in these areas are called crow’s feet. Botox quickly diminishes these lines, smooths the skin, and gives you a more youthful appearance.
Corners Of Mouth
The lines around the mouth can become very deep as you age and make the mouth look droopy. Botox can combat that and make the lines look far less noticeable while gently pulling the muscles upward to reduce the drooping effect.
Smoker’s Lines can appear around your lips regardless of whether you smoke. They are seen as vertical lines when you purse your lips, which is how they got their name. Botox will fill in those lines and make them less noticeable, especially when applying lipstick since you will have a smoother application.
Botox is a far better option for this condition if you don’t want to go under the knife. A treatment with Botox tightens the skin in this area, gently lifting the eyebrows, and the improvement is immediate and dramatic.
