Have you noticed fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead when you smile or frown? These expression lines will initially disappear when your face relaxes, but over time, they will become deeper and more lasting. Botox® can be used at almost any age to address or even prevent these lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® is the world’s most well-known treatment for expression lines. It works using botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that affects signals between nerves and muscles. Botox® injections cause your facial muscles to stop receiving signals that tell them to contract. As a result, the skin becomes smooth and lets your wrinkles relax. Botox® treats lines at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), between the brows (glabellar lines or the 11s), and horizontal forehead lines.
