How can Botox improve my appearance?
As we age, the repetitive pull of our facial muscles can cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on our faces. Botox weakens the pull of these facial muscles on your skin, causing the skin in your face to relax and your wrinkles to soften or even disappear.
What areas on my face are best improved with Botox?
Botox works well at decreasing the wrinkles between your eyebrows, an area that can make you look not only older but also more stressed or worried. Botox also works well to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead as well. These lines can make you look tired or sleepy in addition to making you look older. Finally, Botox also works very well at treating the wrinkles that develop around the eyes with time. These wrinkles can be one of the first signs of aging if not treated.
