The muscles causing the undesired wrinkles and lines in the face are injected with BTX through a micro-needle. In time, these muscles relax as a result of the Botox solution blocking the nerve impulses from reaching them. Once those muscles freeze, the overlying skin relaxes, while other surrounding active muscles pull on the area, actively erasing any visible lines.
Botox is used to treat one or more areas of the face:
- Bunny lines (nose)
- Frown lines (glabella)
- Crow’s feet (eyes)
- Marionette lines (mouth to chin)
- Mouth lines (“smokers lines”)
