Seems we are always looking for ways to achieve a younger, more vibrant look by improving our facial appearance. Botox® is used to eliminate or reduce worry & frown lines, “crow’s feet,” laugh lines, and other wrinkles, which are sometimes called dynamic wrinkles. This procedure using Botulinum Toxin or Botox®, has been developed to treat the effects of aging by removing wrinkles. This procedure, sometimes referred to as cosmetic denervation, has been widely used and is considered safe and effective.
The procedure works by physiologically weakening facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to expression lines. The contractions of those muscles result in wrinkles. Botox® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles thereby relaxing them. The result is that the pull of the underlying facial muscles relax causing the skin to flatten. This results in a smooth, unwrinkled look.
