Your crow’s feet and laugh lines are all caused by muscles under the skin contracting when laughing, smiling or expressing emotions. BOTOX® is effective because it works on the cause, the facial muscles. BOTOX® temporarily weakens the underlying muscles, reducing their ability to contract. This results in smoother, tighter, wrinkle-free skin. Many BOTOX patients choose to use BOTOX® as a wrinkle-preventive in order to avoid the formation of wrinkles before they form.
