The years take a toll on our faces by adding lines and wrinkles just where we want to be smooth and dewy. Depending on our skin type and what we get up to, wrinkles and lines can start to appear on our faces in our 20s. Some people already have quite deep lines in certain places in their 30s. You know, those ones between the brows from frowning in concentration, the ones around the eyes from smiling or crinkling them up against the sun.
The good news about these lines is that they are in fact caused by habitually contracting the muscles in our faces. If only we could stop doing this, the skin would smooth out. You can stop this happening with the help of Botox in North London at Adams Dental.
Botox in North London has been around for a good few years now. It is being used by more and more people, men and women, to iron out wrinkles that they just can’t help making with their habitual facial expressions.
What is Botox?
Botox was first created to stop excessive sweating. It was then discovered to be good at smoothing out lines. It is the purified protein of the Botulinum toxin. Injecting it into wrinkles gets it to the nerves that tell the muscles to contract. It blocks the signal that they send. It takes a few days for the muscles to smooth out and then the treatment lasts for about four months. People often get a top-up after three months.
Where to use Botox
People find Botox works well in the top third of the face, on crow’s feet around the eyes, worry lines on the brow and frown lines between the brows. Botox in North London is also good for reducing the appearance of gummy smiles by relaxing the muscles that pull the top lip up too high.
