Botox is a treatment that restores a more youthful appearance by easing away fine lines and wrinkles. Why do these fine lines form in the skin of the face?
One major cause of small wrinkles is facial muscle overuse. We tend to repeat facial expressions on a daily basis, using the same muscle groups in the same ways over and over again. This is also true for various facial actions like chewing and talking.
When we do this, the muscles get used to these contractions and have a more difficult time returning to a resting state. Contracted muscles beneath the skin cause the appearance of wrinkles. Botox relaxes contracted muscles to smooth away those fine lines.
