Relax Facial Muscles & Soften Wrinkles

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment derived from botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance. When injected in small doses, it temporarily relaxes muscle activity, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Commonly used to address forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines, Botox offers a non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation. The treatment is quick, virtually painless, and requires no downtime, making it a convenient option for a refreshed appearance.

How Botox Works

Dynamic wrinkles, often called expression lines, result from repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions. When you smile, frown, or squint, the underlying muscles contract, causing the overlying skin to fold and crease. Over time, these repetitive contractions lead to the formation of noticeable lines and wrinkles. This process is particularly evident in areas like the forehead, around the eyes (crow's feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines).

Botox works by temporarily blocking the signals between nerves and muscles at the injection site. The botulinum toxin type A in Botox inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. With reduced muscle activity, the skin relaxes, allowing wrinkles and lines to soften and fade over time. This effectively smooths out dynamic wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Call to schedule an appointment for Botox in Virginia Beach today!
