Why is Botox® So Effective at Treating Facial Wrinkles?
Botox® is so effective at treating wrinkles because it’s formulated to tackle the issues that actually cause these lines: chronic, muscle movements.
FDA-approved Botox® contains botulinum toxin, a safe neuroprotein that works to block the nerve endings’ signals to the muscles at the treatment site. When this happens, those microscopic muscle movements temporarily stop, meaning your lines and wrinkles appear softer and less visible.
This temporary stop to chronic facial movements – like squinting and brow-furrowing – can help erase the lines caused by these movements, thus helping you appear younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Getting rid of muscle movements that also add to aging by pulling brows or the corners of the lips down can literally add a lift, by raising eyebrows attractively, and making the depressed lip corners more horizontal.
Are You a Good Candidate for Botox®?
You’re a good candidate for Botox® injections if you have mild to moderate forehead lines and frown lines, which are typically located between the eyebrows, deepening crow’s feet, prominent horizontal lines on the forehead, prominent vertical bands on the neck, or bunny lines on each side of the bridge of the nose.
Botox is not only effective, but is incredibly safe, both in its actions, and also because it can often be performed with a mask on, has no interactions with vaccines and looks good on zoom or in person!
