It works by relaxing the muscle injected, therefore reducing the contraction and smoothing the area.
Crow’s feet, which are fine lines that extend from the corner of the eye toward the temple, appear over time as the result of facial expressions like laughing, smiling, and squinting. Botox can relax the dynamic muscles around the eyes to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet. The presence of wrinkles on the forehead can make us appear older than we are and even give us the appearance of being angry or upset. Botox injections can relax forehead lines and smooth out deeper wrinkles and furrows. Botox can be used to lift a low set brow resulting in a non-surgical brow lift that opens up the eyes. The ‘11’s’, or frown lines, appear between the eyebrows as the result of years of facial expressions. Botox will stop the muscles underneath the 11’s from contracting to result in a smoother more relaxed brow. Horizontal wrinkles across the nose, or ‘bunny lines’, can be easily minimized through carefully placed Botox injections.
