BOTOX® Cosmeticin Las Vegas, NV
While some lines and wrinkles develop purely from aging and sun damage, others worsen with repeated facial movements. These types of lines usually form on the upper part of the face, around the eyes and on the forehead. While wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines are initially temporary and disappear as soon as the face is at rest once again, they worsen to become permanent expression lines over time. Just like a piece of paper repeatedly folded over a long time, wrinkles will set into the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic works best in preventing these wrinkles before they become irreversible.
BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces these lines so that patients can experience a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance.
What Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Improve?
Blinking, squinting, and smiling weaken the tissues on the outer corners of the eyes. Folding of skin in this area results in crow’s feet—small lines radiating from the edges of the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces (but may not eliminate) the appearance of these lines so that you can keep smiling with less worry.
Frown lines are the “11” lines that form between the eyebrows in response to repeated squinting and frowning. These repeated facial movements start early on in life and continue to break down and weaken the tissues until the skin develops permanent lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic inhibits muscle movement to reduce these lines and slow down their development.
Certain facial expressions are created by muscle contractions that cause creases across the forehead. These repeated muscle movements, combined with the breakdown of collagen and elastin, result in permanent lines across the forehead. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily lessens these horizontal lines to restore a youthful complexion.
