What Imperfections Does Botox Fix?

It seems like everyone is getting Botox® these days. After all, it can greatly enhance your look by making those pesky signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, fade away. Is it right for you? Read on to find out.

How Botox works

Botox is effective when it comes to dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that result from repetitive facial expressions, like smiling, squinting, frowning, or looking concerned. When repeated day after day, these movements etch lines into your face that can make you look aged way beyond your years. 

When injected into the corresponding muscles by a qualified, experienced provider  like Yaqub Baraki, MD, and the rest of the team at Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, Botox blocks the nerve impulses leading to these muscles so that they relax. As a result, your expressions soften, and the appearance of aging fades. 

Botox treatments take just a few minutes, but the results last for three to four months. Retreatments are always possible to maintain or tweak your look further.

Forehead lines

If anytime you raise your eyebrows in surprise, folds appear -- Botox can help. It relaxes the muscles just enough to help you look softer and smoother, even when surprised or quizzical.

Do know that when too much Botox is injected into these horizontal forehead lines, you can look frozen or artificial. That’s why it’s important to visit an experienced provider, like Dr. Baraki. He can accurately judge the size of your muscles and the right amount of Botox to apply for you to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Worry lines

When you are concerned or distressed, lines can form between your brows. These elevens, or glabellar lines can make you look displeased or unhappy, even when you’re feeling just fine. 

Botox is one of the best ways to smooth these frown lines, so you look rested, relaxed, and naturally pleasant. 

Crow’s feet

When you smile or squint, fine lines start to form around the corners of your eyes. If you have an expressive face, crow’s feet can be quite dramatic and definitely make you look older than you feel. 

Expertly placed injections of Botox reduce the look of crow’s feet, so you can show your joy and smile for photos confidently.

Mouth corners

Lines and wrinkles form around your mouth as you get older. They’re in response to the muscle activity involved in laughing, smiling, kissing, smoking, frowning, and general aging. 

When expertly placed, Botox can lift the corners of your mouth in a gentle-looking way to create a pleasant, inviting expression. 

Vertical neck bands

Some people develop prominent vertical bands or cords on their neck. Botox is effective in relaxing the muscles responsible for these cords to give your neck a smoother, softer appearance.

Cobblestone chin

You may notice an orange peel-like look develop on your chin as you get older. This is because of the natural loss of the thin layer of fat that sits beneath the surface of your skin. The cobblestone look makes you appear tired and older. 

Botox can smooth out the look of a cobblestone skin to restore symmetry and youthfulness to your face. 

Dr. Baraki and his team at Lansdowne Aesthetic Center are experts when it comes to applying Botox. He can help you understand how the neuromodulator can enhance your look and even combine it with dermal fillers to comprehensively address the signs of aging.
