Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows.
You may feel that the moderate to severe glabellar lines “Frown lines” between your brows make you look tired or unapproachable, or you experience “Crow’s-feet” – the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes or “Forehead furrows” – the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows or you may have other reasons for being curious about BOTOX®. Ask us about BOTOX® to find out if it is right for you. Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia.
