If you have moderate to severe lines between your eyebrows, around your eyes, or on your forehead, you may be considering Botox treatments to reduce their appearance. Whether you call them crow’s feet, frown lines, or something else, these facial lines can make you feel less confident and increase your desire to regain a youthful appearance. Here are a few things you should know about these treatments.
- Lines are formed when the underlying musculature of your face undergoes repetitive contraction, resulting in atrophy. This process takes time to occur. Botox injections into these overactive muscles permits them to relax so that the overlying skin is smoother. It is important to note that because this process has taken several decades to transpire, it can take several Botox treatments to get the optimal results you are looking for, and other types of filler treatments may also be needed.
- Botox treatments are generally done in 3-month intervals, and it is important not to exceed the maximum cumulative dose of 400 units during that period.
- Botox injections should only be done by a trained and experienced provider to get the best results and avoid side effects. A professional will go over the potential side effects and any constraints involved, so you can make an informed decision about whether Botox is right for you.
