Physiological changes that occur in the body with age lead to seeking aesthetic solutions for cosmetic concerns because aging causes destruction of fat and connective tissues that protect the skin such as elastin and collagen and it makes skin more susceptible to dryness and eventually skin loses its elasticity. Botox injection applied under the skin in order to interfere with mimic muscles in the areas, where dynamic lines and wrinkles occur, for the purpose of eliminating lines and wrinkles that are formed on the face and which are not deep and for preventing potential wrinkles is called Face Botox.
Botox that is injected into mimic muscles weakens muscles and prevents the skin from folding and wrinkling as caused by muscle movements of the skin. Face Botox helps you get rid of the tired, unhappy and angry look on your face and restores a more youthful, energetic and wrinkle-free expression.
Any healthy person who is old enough to be counted as adult but not too advanced in age to be counted as elderly, in other words those aged between 18 and 65 years, can get Botox, except for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Its results last approximately for 4 to 6 months. The life of Botox injection can be prolonged somewhat through repeat injections, sun protection or applying face moisturizers.
