The main reason Botox is popular is that it works. Botox works by gently relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles.
Where can botox be useful?
Ageing can make you look tired, sad or angry, when in reality you feel energized and happy. This is exactly where cosmetic medicine treatments can help you to reflect what you’re feeling inside.
'Some people think that I'm mad when I'm in fact feeling nothing'
'I remember feeling betrayed by my face, as if it was making decisions without my approval.'
“I can always tell when my Botox is due because my face doesn’t match how I feel inside”
YES, BOTOX CAN MAKE YOU LOOK LESS ANGRY
You might have a hard time getting over the idea of cheating the natural process of aging. However, Botox and dermal fillers are particularly good at altering the emotional signals your face conveys.
Botox injections relax the muscles in your face (its not a permanent effect) to smooth out lines and wrinkles which can last for at least 3-4 months, maybe longer for younger skins.
