How Botox can help you
Everyone develops visible signs of aging sooner or later. Although you may not feel any older, your face tells a different story. Fortunately, Botox offers a simple solution if you have lines and wrinkles related to dynamic facial expressions. Every time you laugh, smile, frown, or squint, your skin crinkles, then relaxes again. As you age, your skin begins to lose elasticity, and those dynamic expression lines become a permanent part of your face.
Botox minimizes lines and wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles you use to make facial expressions. When the muscle no longer contracts, lines, and wrinkles in the skin smooth out. The FDA-approved treatment is safe and effective and only takes a few minutes in our Encino, CA, office.
Botox injections offer the following benefits:
- No More Frown Lines: Squinting or frowning can cause vertical lines to form between your eyes. Although the lines aren't very big, they may make you look tired or grumpy. Softening these lines with Botox subtly improves your appearance.
- The End of Forehead Furrows: Are you reluctant to wear your hair off your face because you don't like the way your forehead furrows look? Botox injections minimize the lines and smooth your forehead.
- Fading of Crow's Feet and Lip Lines: Botox also treats lines around your lips and eyes that can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
- A Smoother Neck: Signs of aging are also visible in your neck. As you grow older, vertical bands of muscle in your neck become prominent. Commonly called "turkey neck," the bands can appear as early as your 40s. Botox relaxes the muscles, making the bands much less noticeable.
Your skin begins to look smoother just a few days after your treatment, although it may take up to two weeks to see the full results. You’ll enjoy the results of your Botox treatment for three to four months. Fortunately, you can keep your skin smooth by scheduling periodic follow-up treatments.
