- Botox: This cosmetic treatment involves injecting Botox into areas such as worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet to block impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles that contribute to these expression lines. Botox relaxes the muscles so they do not contract which helps to soften these lines. Botox injections are a temporary solution and results may last from three to six months.
Most patients love Botox because it improves the brow position giving a patient a temporary brow lift. This provides a younger, brighter appearance which looks very natural. Common areas Botox can improve include: Low brow position, frown lines between the eye brows the 11s, crow’s feet around the eyes and bunny lines, the paper lines of the ridge of the nose.
