As we age our skin tends to lose its natural elasticity and starts to droop. Plus when we smile and make certain faces our skin no longer bounces back and starts to stay in the same position as when we made the face. For example, smiles cause crows feet and creases around our mouths. Who knew that being happy could actually cause wrinkles.
Botox can give effective results against wrinkles caused by the action of muscles in the upper face that pinch and crease the skin. It can also be used to plump up the lips to make them appear more youthful. This includes:
- Crows feet, caused by the orbicularis oculi muscles around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines, caused by the frontalis muscles in the forehead
- Frown lines between the brows caused by corrugator supercilii and procerus muscles
In addition to wrinkles, many individuals notice that their eyebrows droop with age. This is caused by the deterioration of muscles in the face. Botox can correct this issue by helping the right muscles pull the brows upwards.
