Botox will dramatically improve (and often vanish) horizontal forehead creases; scowl lines between your eyebrows, crow's feet, and vertical wrinkles of your upper lip. Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, are due to repetitive facial expression. Weakening the muscles responsible for these facial expressions can dramatically improve these wrinkles. With the use of Botox, these muscles can be weakened without impacting facial expressions, and your natural, vibrant skin will strengthen and return. It can help you achieve a younger looking complexion without the complications associated with major cosmetic surgical procedures.
