Botox is a wrinkle relaxer that helps eliminate and relax wrinkles with the use of a neurotoxin. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles through repetitive movements and contractions. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin has the opportunity to heal itself and reduce or eliminate wrinkles before the Botox wears off and muscles begin contracting again. There are three common areas for Botox injections.
The area around the eyes can greatly benefit from Botox treatments. When Botox is injected around the eyes, it reduces the muscle movements that cause crow’s feet. Crow’s feet refer to the tiny lines that form around the eyes, and they are usually caused by frequent squinting or laughing or any movement that crinkles the eyes.
Brow and Forehead
The brow and forehead are another area of the face where lines and wrinkles form due to repetitive movements and expressions. Many people wrinkle their forehead when they are stressed, worried, anxious, angry, or maybe even just when thinking. Botox relaxes the muscles in the forehead and smooths the skin eliminating the creases.
Frown and Laugh Lines
Another area of the face that benefits from Botox is the area around the mouth and nose, or nasolabial folds. These deeper lines are sometimes called frown lines or laugh lines. They occur when you frequently make expressions with your mouth. These folds can also be remedied with Botox treatments.
