Over time, certain lines and wrinkles seem to become etched on our faces. That’s because these lines, known as dynamic wrinkles, are caused by the motions we make when laughing, squinting, frowning and performing other facial expressions. As the years go by, they become more noticeable. You’ll start to see more laugh lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. It’s only natural, but you don’t have to put up with it. BOTOX® injections are specifically meant to address these types of wrinkles. You can look younger and more vibrant with this trusted treatment. Take a look below to learn more about BOTOX® and the benefits it offers.
About BOTOX® Injections
BOTOX® is essentially a purified protein solution, and it’s completely safe when used in diluted doses and injected into targeted muscles for the purpose of relaxing them. That’s how BOTOX® injections work to soften harsh facial lines. The product has long been approved by the FDA for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet. It’s also used in the treatment of other medical issues.
How It Works
BOTOX® is injected into the muscles connected to a wrinkle. It stops the signal from nerves to muscles, allowing wrinkles to loosen. Your furrows, lines and deep creases will look remarkably softer and less noticeable through this process. It’s temporary but effective in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® is specifically used to address lines such as forehead creases, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other lines. Other types of wrinkles such as those caused by environmental exposure and gravity may not be affected by BOTOX®. BOTOX® doesn’t fill wrinkles; therefore, it doesn’t fall under the category of dermal fillers. Rather, it works to relax the muscles that create certain types of wrinkles.
