It is no surprise that non-surgical injectables like Botox are used over six million times each year in the United States. Botox offers a way to quickly address the signs of aging, smoothing away and preventing lines and wrinkles without any downtime so you can get right back to your daily routine after your treatment. If you are wanting to fight off the signs of aging, but aren’t quite ready to undergo surgery, Botox may be a great option for you. When you smile, frown, or anything in between, your facial muscles are pulling and folding your skin in order to show your expressions. As these facial contractions occur more and more as you age, lines and wrinkles begin developing on the surface of your skin where it has been constantly folded and pushed. The way Botox works is by relaxing these underlying muscles to soften your expressions and improve the appearance of the signs of aging. Botox can be used to treat common problems such as: • Crow’s feet • Frown lines • Nasolabial folds
