Botox® is the preferred method for patients who are looking to smooth and fade fine lines and wrinkles around their forehead and eyes.

 

But how does Botox® transform wrinkles and crepey skin into a smooth and youthful glow?

How Botox® Works

 

Botox® is able to smooth away lines and wrinkles thanks to its main ingredient: botulinum toxin. This neuroprotein is the most studied toxin in the world because it is commonly used for medical and cosmetic treatments.

 

Forehead lines and wrinkles can be the direct result of the repeated muscular action that comes with many years of squinting and frowning and sun exposure.

 

When injected, Botox® temporarily relaxes the muscles for several months, smoothing the face as well as providing a subtle brow lift.

 

Botox® is safe and highly vetted, which is why it was approved by the FDA back in 2003 for the treatment of:

 

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines (glabellar lines)
  • Crow’s feet

Botox® Candidates

 

The best candidates for Botox® are those individuals with moderate forehead lines and frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox® can also be used to treat crow’s feet, which are wrinkles that extend out from the corners of the eyes.

 

All Botox® candidates should be healthy individuals.

 

What to Expect from Botox® Results

 

Your Botox® results may include:

 

  • Softened forehead lines
  • Smoother, more rejuvenated skin
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Faded wrinkles
  • And more!

 

Botox® results last three to four months before a maintenance appointment is recommended.
