When you smile, laugh, frown, or squint, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired
Fraser Eye Care Center and the Eye Care Center of Port Huron are proud to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic as treatment for frown lines between the eyebrows and tiny lines at the edges of the eye lids. BOTOX® is the trade name for an injectable medication that has been used for treatments of wrinkles that are caused by muscle activity, specifically the muscles that contract during facial expressions, like frowning or squinting. BOTOX®, works by blocking the transmission of signals from nerves to muscles, preventing the muscles from being able to contract. When injected in small doses to specific muscles in the face this can lead to a reduction in lines and wrinkles associated with contraction of those muscles.
BOTOX® has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world.
The ideal areas to treat are the deep creases found between the eyebrows, the crows feet wrinkles, and forehead lines.
