BOTOX® injections can be greatly instrumental in restoring a youthful quality to your face. Once you reach a certain age, you may start to see the formation of laugh lines and crow’s feet settling into your skin. This is an indication that your skin is not as elastic as it was. In a lot of cases, many skin treatment options do little to nothing to improve the situation with laugh lines and crow’s feet. What you need is a cosmetic procedure that makes a more significant impact on your facial skin. Fortunately, cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX® injections are all the rage in our modern age.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
In general, BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that is injected under the skin. The aim of BOTOX® injections is to temporarily paralyze the nerves responsible for causing facial muscle contraction. If the facial nerves do not communicate with and contract the facial muscles, this helps to cause the facial skin to maintain a more relaxed appearance. As the muscles do not contract, they do not cause wrinkles, creases, or furrows in the skin.
Complementary Cosmetic Procedures
Often BOTOX® injections are used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. It is common to use BOTOX® in conjunction with dermal fillers to reduce lines and cause the skin to obtain some lift in the process. Dermal fillers are usually implemented to provide volume in certain areas of the face, most commonly the chin, lips, and cheeks.
