BOTOX® Cosmetic injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. The muscles of facial expression will typically cause the overlying skin to wrinkle in an accordion-like fashion. Botox® eliminates these facial wrinkles that occur with habitual overuse of specific muscles. It prevents the muscle from contracting, so the skin crease gradually decreases in depth and severity. Botox® effectively inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. Some of the common areas treated include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.
