3 Reasons To Add Facial Botox Treatments To Your Beauty Routine

No matter how old you are, if you want your skin to look young and stay that way for as long as possible, you may be thinking about getting facial Botox injections. These cosmetic treatments soften wrinkles and may even reduce the development of future wrinkles. Here's why you may want to add these injections to your beauty routine.

1. Lines Around Your Eyes Improve

Crow's feet are one of the first signs of aging, and the lines get deeper as you get older. Botox can be injected in the muscles that make the lines around your eyes so the wrinkles smooth out. Facial lines like these are caused by expressions that make your skin wrinkle. When you have an injection in the area, your muscles don't move, and wrinkles aren't created. In addition, Botox can have a cumulative effect.

If you get the injections on the schedule recommended by your dermatologist, the lack of wrinkling caused by lack of muscle movement prevents the deepening of the wrinkles as you age. That's why the injections aren't just for older people. They can help young people ward off wrinkles for longer.

2. Frown Lines Smooth Out

An unfortunate consequence of developing deep wrinkles is that they can make you look like you're making an unpleasant facial expression even though your face is at rest. Once frown lines develop deep furrows, you always look like you're frowning. That affects how people react to you, and it may even affect your own mood.

Botox may not eliminate deep lines completely, but the injections can make lines less noticeable and keep them from getting worse as long as you keep up with the treatments. It might improve your mood to know you don't always look like you're frowning, and your face may have a friendlier appearance to others.

3. Forehead Wrinkles Diminish

Wrinkles on the forehead tend to get deeper with age. The forehead is a common place to get Botox injections so the deep wrinkles are improved. The injections also work on shallow wrinkles that cross your forehead to give your skin a smoother appearance. Botox doesn't work on your skin. It works on the muscles under your skin. When the muscles are relaxed, wrinkles are less obvious, and the forehead is where this effect is easy to see.

However, the results you get from Botox injections depend on the dermatologist you see. The injections have to be in precise locations, and the right amount of Botox needs to be used to get the most flattering results.
