Each smile, frown or any facial expression contributes to your facial lines and wrinkles. Deeper lines or furrows are formed by muscle activity on your face. These lines usually start out as dynamic lines and are strengthened as static lines over time making the furrows permanent. Once the muscles are relaxed, lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
Botox is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Botox delivers dramatic results in eliminating wrinkles in the forehead, nose, and eyes, and can also be used reduce or remove gummy smiles by lowering the upper lip, treat the mouth area from pulling down and reduce or remove neck wrinkles, or neck bands.
