A combination of factors causes facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that occur in our bodies, the reduced production of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions in our faces, such as frowning, squinting, raising eyebrows, etc… cause the skin to furrow and fold. Gradually, vertical lines form on our foreheads, at the corners of our eyes, and around our mouths.
Botox Cosmetic works beneath the surface to temporarily reduce the muscle activity that causes frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Freezing the muscles helps the skin look visibly smoother.
