Female Model for Botox TreatmentWe all want to look and feel our best for as long as possible. As we age, time has a way of dimming some of our brightest features and dulling our looks. It can be difficult seeing our once beautiful skin start to wrinkle and gain lines in places that were once smooth. Not to worry! BOTOX® is a treatment that can noticeably improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. 

What is Botox and What Can It Do for You?

Botox is the brand name of a drug developed using a toxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Using small and targeted injections, it works by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscle – preventing its contraction.

This injectable filler can soften wrinkles and relax facial lines when administered strategically by an experienced provider. 

Other conditions Botox can be used to treat: 

  • Migraine headaches
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Neck spasms (cervical dystonia)
  • Lazy eye (strabismus)
  • Uncontrollable blinking or eye twitching (blepharospasm)
  • Overactive bladder

Best Areas to Treat with Botox 

While Botox has a variety of applications, these are the areas where you can use it most effectively:

Frown Lines

Also known as glabellar lines, these are vertical creases that form between the eyebrows making us continuously look older, tired, and angry. These lines can look deep and give the impression of the number 11 imprinted in the middle of the forehead. Botox can be an excellent way to minimize the depth of the lines and soften their appearance. 

Forehead Wrinkles

Over time, the constant use of the frontalis muscles creates dynamic wrinkles on the forehead that can make us look much older. Botox can be a great solution by smoothing wrinkles that develop with age and muscle usage.

Crow’s Feet

Squinting and the repeated use of the muscles surrounding the eyes contribute to small lines at the corners of the eyelids that resemble crow’s feet. Botox can help these deep dynamic wrinkles appear less prevalent. 

Bunny Lines

These lines normally present diagonally across the nose and are commonly caused by scrunching the face. While they may be considered endearing to many, these lines can increase in number and look deeply etched on the skin over time. Treatment with Botox can solve this problem and make these lines less noticeable.   

Brow Lift

Botox can also create a temporary lift around the brow region without requiring an invasive surgical procedure. Often referred to as the “Botox brow lift,” it aims to raise the profile of the eyebrows by relaxing the muscles that pull down on them. This lift, in effect, reshapes the arch giving it a fuller presentation while reducing sagging around the eyes.
