Botox Cosmetic is a non-surgical injection used to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is commonly used under the eyes, on the forehead, around the mouth and around the lips to provide a dramatic. Botox for wrinkles and fine lines is quite popular since Botox cost makes it affordable for many patients. Our team at Shimma Beauty Center in Arlington, offers specials and deals on Botox Cosmetic treatments for our patients throughout the year, making it even more cost effective.
How Do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Work?
When our faces are animated by our expressions, including frowns, surprise, and smiles, we develop forehead lines, brow furrows, crow’s feet, and bunny lines (the vertical lines across the bridge of the nose). To combat this, BOTOX® temporarily paralyzes the corrugator, procerus, and orbicularis oculi muscles, all of which are responsible for
horizontal surprise lines on the forehead, deep furrows—sometimes called “elevens”—between the brows, and crow’s feet.
BOTOX® blocks the nerve signals from the brain to these muscles, reducing activity and giving the skin the
opportunity to relax. Over time, wrinkles in the skin fade, and with repeated treatments, less BOTOX® is required each time for the same effect. So if you’re concerned about fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead, but aren’t ready for a surgical treatment such as a facelift, BOTOX® may be everything you need.
