Are you unhappy with the face you see staring back at you from the mirror? Fine lines and wrinkles can make you look older than you feel and lower your self-esteem. Botox injections offer an effective way to temporarily diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The dermatologists at South Coast Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, located in Weymouth, MA, in the South Shore of Massachusetts, offer Botox treatments.
Botox treats lines and wrinkles caused by dynamic expressions
Year of laughing, smiling and frowning can cause permanent lines or wrinkles on your face. Botox treatments soften lines and wrinkles for three to four months. When the botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles under the skin, the nerve impulses that tell the muscles to contracts when you make a facial expression are blocked. As a result, the skin over the area becomes smoother and less wrinkled.
Vertical lines between your eyes can give away your age, even if the rest of your face is still fairly line-free. Botox injections diminish those "11" lines, refreshing your appearance. After years of raising your eyebrows, deep furrows can develop on your forehead. The horizontal lines respond very well to Botox treatment. In fact, you might just feel confident enough to finally try a forehead-baring hairstyle after your treatment.
Botox also reduces crow's feet, the tiny crinkles that form at the outside edges of your eyes when you laugh or smile. Smoking can cause lines around your lips, but the lines may be an issue even if you've never touched a cigarette. No matter what the cause, Botox treatment relaxes the lines, improving your smile.
During your younger years, the nasolabial fold lines that extend from your nose to your mouth were probably only visible when you smiled. Unfortunately, the lines become more prominent and don't disappear quite as easily as you grow older. Thanks to Botox treatments, nasolabial fold lines become much less noticeable.
