Many of the fine lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by the contraction of muscles beneath the skin. This repeated movement of the muscles causes gradual changes to the skin over time including weakening of collagen and elastin fibers.
Fortunately, there is a way to help decrease the formation of these frown lines, worry lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead. A medication known as Botox® works by temporarily weakening the muscles causing some of these facial lines and wrinkles, leading to smoother, less-wrinkled skin. Botox® is the #1 safe and effective treatment for dramatically reducing wrinkles in aging skin.
The procedure is quick with minimal discomfort and little, if any, downtime. For the greatest effect, it should be repeated every three to four months in order to maintain the result.
