Botox is one of many injectable treatment options used to temporarily minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by the natural contraction of the facial muscles.
While botox won’t permanently get rid of the signs of aging, it will help to create a more youthful appearance through the smoothing of lines and creases that form across our face as part of the natural aging process.
Botox blocks the muscles in the treated areas of the face from contracting, which causes the skin to compress and crease, over time creating the wrinkles that we notice across our forehead, between our eyebrows, and at the corners of our eyes.
These are not the only areas that form wrinkles and fine lines and are not the only areas that can be treated with botox, but they are the most common.
Botox improves the face by restoring the smooth, youthful surface of the skin through the reduction of the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
These lines appear as we get older, due to the contraction of our facial muscles, which compress the skin and create creases. As our skin loses elasticity, these creases don’t bounce back the way they used to, leaving wrinkles in our skin.
With Botox, the injection blocks the muscles from being able to contract, and the skin remains smooth when the face makes different expressions.
Botox is injected in such a way to still allow the face to have natural-looking movement, so it doesn’t appear frozen or stiff while preventing the wrinkles from forming.
Botox can be used in conjunction with filler injections as well to further smooth out any areas where fine lines are still visible.
Botox is safe for use on both men and women to help prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines when they smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions.
As part of the natural movement of the face, wrinkles can appear across the forehead, between the eyebrows, at the corners of the eyes, at the top of the nose, and from the corner of the nostril to the corner of the mouth.
With botox injections, the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles to appear are blocked from being able to contract, and therefore prevent the lines from forming when the face moves.
Botox injections should be strategically planned with a certified practitioner so that the face remains naturally able to make facial expressions without appearing frozen or stiff due to multiple areas of the face having been injected.
People interested in getting botox should work with a botox-certified practitioner such as the team at La Vie Medspa Opelousas to find the best treatment options for the look they are trying to achieve.
Botox can be injected into most areas of the face where wrinkles and fine lines appear as the result of muscle contractions, however, injecting too many places at one time can cause the face to appear stiff or frozen.
The most common areas of the face that are treated with botox injections are on the upper part of the face and include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corners of the eyes.
Botox can also be injected at the corners of the mouth, beside the base of the nose, at the top of the nose, in the chin, and along the jawline, depending on where wrinkles and fine lines are forming.
Botox has become a very popular anti-aging treatment and is widely available across the United States and around the world.
It is important to seek out botox treatment through a certified botox practitioner, such as the team at La Vie Medspa Opelousas.
This will ensure that only a true botox product is used and that it is correctly and accurately injected into the treated area.
While botox is a safe substance, incorrect use and application of it can have serious side effects.
