Cosmetic Botox is a prescription medication that can aid adults in offsetting the appearance of aging in their face. Most commonly, Botox is injected into the forehead, around the mouth, or around the eyes to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and age lines. Provided you seek a licensed medical professional, cosmetic Botox is a safe procedure with minimal side effect.
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors, most prominently of which entail the movement of muscles beneath the skin. Botox works by minimizing muscle movement. It is injected directly into the muscles underneath the skin where it interacts with the muscle activity and inhibits the production of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a substance that promotes muscle activity, thereby increasing the development of wrinkles. In this way, Botox not only helps to minimize the appearance of existing wrinkles in the skin, but it can prevent future wrinkles from appearing. This is what all Beverly Hills plastic surgeons are using!
