Do you ever find yourself trying to admire a beautiful photo of you and family or friends, but can’t help but get distracted by the frown lines between your eyebrows?
Fine lines are inevitable with age and are a representation of the life we’ve lived and the stories we’ve created. However, it’s easy and normal to lose confidence in yourself as frown lines deepen and continue to make their presence known.
Botox treatments are fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration, making them a safe and effective way to minimize the appearance of these lines so you can achieve a smoother and fuller appearance.
If you struggle with frown lines, continue reading to learn more about how a Botox Cosmetic treatment can do wonders for you.
How Botox Cosmetic Works
1. Targeting Muscle Contractions
Through our facial expressions, outside factors such as sun exposure, or just the natural aging process, fine lines eventually begin to form as a result of our muscles contracting.
Botox Cosmetic works by injecting these specific muscles that create these contractions, and ultimately, fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Blocking Nerve Signals
After injecting the contracting muscles, the signals between the nerves and muscles are blocked.
3. Temporary Muscle Paralysis
Blocking the communication between nerves and muscles results in temporary paralysis of the injected area. This is because the muscles are no longer able to contract like they usually are.
Smooth Out Wrinkles
Due to this localized paralysis, you will start to notice the frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and wrinkles start to minimize. Since the muscles are now relaxed and unable to fully contract, the injected area will appear much smoother, and will now be more resistant to creasing and the formation of new lines.
It’s important to understand that Botox treatments do not provide immediate results. Don’t worry if you’re not seeing the results you hoped for after a couple of days following your Botox Cosmetic injection. Full results typically won’t set in until 15 days or more following the treatment.
After the full results from your injection do set in, they’ll usually last for three to four months. However, this timeframe is dependent on a number of factors as well as the area that has been injected.
Receiving regular treatments is the best way to ensure your frown lines between the eyebrows and any other wrinkles are consistently minimized. This also prevents the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
