We're proud to offer cosmetic and restorative dentistry that rejuvenate your smile. But your grin isn't the only area of your face that can require a revival. Our daily stressors and frustrations leave visual signs across our skin. Consider the last time you were concentrating deeply, and realized that your brow was furrowed. This isn't only uncomfortable, it's damaging to the skin. Fortunately, there are ways to gently smooth the resulting facial lines - without plastic surgery or invasive procedures. Botox leads the way in relieving forehead lines.
Elkhart Botox Treatment
Botox treatment is a single-appointment solution to forehead lines. It can also be used to lighten crow's feet, wrinkles at the corners of the eyes. Botox aims to smooth wrinkles without changing the way you express yourself. With appropriate administration of Botox by a skilled provider, you'll enjoy predictable results while still retaining facial motion.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox affects the neuromuscular junction, the area where your muscles and nerves connect. The medication contains botulinum toxin A, which interrupts the chain of command between nerves and muscles. When a nerve signal reaches the junction, it releases acetylcholine, which binds to the muscle to induce contraction. Botox occupies those acetylcholine receptors to prevent nerves from successfully communicating. This halts muscle movement without damaging the muscle.
Choosing Botox for Your Facial Lines
If you've felt less confident or older-looking because of facial lines, Botox could be right for you. Why not set off your beautiful smile with smooth, youthful skin? Botox is ideal for vertical brow lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow's feet. Botox is right for every type of patient - male or female, with light facial lines, or with deep wrinkles.
