Botox has been approved by the FDA to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles. These areas include crow's-feet by the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines. We also offer injectable filler that is injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features restoring a smoother appearance to include the lip and under the nasal line.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, raising eyebrows, and other facial expressions cause skin to wrinkle. Botox works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the muscle activity that causes the wrinkles to form. Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, so the muscle can’t contract. This makes wrinkles and lines relax and soften.
