An increasingly popular treatment with professional men, strategic relaxation of certain muscles can give you a less angry, tired, or aging look.
Prominent forehead creases, brow furrows or eye lines (crow’s feet) can be brought about by specific facial expression muscles repeatedly creasing the skin. When small amounts of neurotoxins (Botox) are injected into the skin, they bind to the nerve endings that supply these muscles, effectively preventing the impulses from traveling to the muscle. The muscles are effectively weakened or paralyzed around the injected area. Botox® temporarily reduces or eliminates previous skin creasing and new skin creasing is avoided.
Small quantities of Botox are injected into precise locations, using a very fine needle. There is a minimal amount of discomfort associated with the injections, often compared to a tiny bee sting. Within days, the
overlying skin becomes smooth and wrinkle free. Botox only affects the muscles where the injection is placed, allowing untreated muscles to contract normally. The treatment requires no downtime and allows you to resume normal daily activities immediately. The effect typically lasts three months before full muscle movement returns. At that point the treatment may be repeated as desired.
