Fine lines, wrinkles, and other mild to moderate signs of facial aging can sometimes come as a surprise when they first appear in the mirror. Thankfully, Dream Spa Medical offers injectable wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® to patients in the Brookline and Canton, MA areas for a highly effective yet non-surgical anti-aging solution.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
The lines that appear between your eyebrows actually result from the repeated engagement of the muscles that sit just beneath your skin. When the powerful muscles between the brows contract, the brows are drawn together, causing the skin to fold and furrow. As your skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows eventually develop into stubborn lines.
This injectable treatment works by relaxing the underlying muscles, which works to gradually smooth the overlying skin. The effects are very localized and, when administered by an experienced provider, don’t affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only product of its kind that has been approved for this use.
