Lines and wrinkles form due to the contraction of muscles under the skin. Most common areas affected are the crow’s feet (around the eyes), the frown and the forehead area. Botox can be used to reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles by preventing the contraction of the hyperactive muscles which causes the lines. A Relaxed muscle means a relaxed skin, which gives a smooth and softened appearance in that area.
