Aging is difficult in a culture that celebrates youth. Age spots, wrinkles and lines, hollows in your face where they didn’t used to be, those are all normal effects of getting older (and sun exposure), but it can be hard to look in the mirror at the face you’ve known all your life and see something different.
When it comes to wrinkles and lines, there’s an injectable answer to making them go away: Botox. Both women and men who swear by it say that they look less tired, less stressed and, most importantly, less old.
Since 2002, Botox has been administered in more than 11 million cosmetic procedures.
Botox is approved to treat the vertical frown lines between your eyebrows, known as glabellar lines. It’s also often used on crow’s feet around the eyes and furrows on the brow. Some people use Botox for a “jaw reduction”, injecting the muscles around the jaw is supposed to slim the appearance of the face.
When Botox is administered to the muscles around wrinkles and lines, they relax and the appearance of wrinkles and lines is smoothed out .
