Addressing common areas of concern with Botox
Lines on the forehead, such as brow furrows, are well suited to Botox treatment. For these and other wrinkles on the upper third of the face, Botox is ideal because this solution addresses the underlying cause of such lines. Called “dynamic wrinkles,” those that appear on the upper third of the face tend to be caused by facial expression and movement. We use the same muscles day after day when frowning against bright sunlight or smiling at our children. In time, these muscles enter a state of constant contraction and those lines that once disappeared when we relaxed remain visible. In blocking the commands from the brain to contract facial muscles, Botox leads to smoother, younger looking skin. Botox has been used extensively for more than ten years in the Unites States, and even longer than that in Europe and other countries. We know this product to be extremely safe, with the most common side effects being temporary swelling or bruising from injections. Some patients may experience a mild headache that can be relieved with over the counter pain reducing medication. In the week following treatment, fine lines around the eyes, brow furrows, or lines across the forehead will progressively improve until, after about seven days, skin looks younger, more vibrant, more attractive.
