Botulinum toxin is one of the most popular and effective anti-wrinkle injections available. Non-surgical treatments are becoming a beauty norm, and popularity is booming in the UK. Nowadays, it’s not just for those looking to combat signs of ageing, but younger patients looking to delay wrinkles and make tweaks to achieve their desired look.
A lot of people are curious about the anti-ageing effects of botulinum toxin and for a good reason. But botulinum toxin has other uses than just smoothing out wrinkles. Let’s take a look at the different ways you can use botulinum toxin on the face.
What Can Botulinum Toxin Be Used For?
Botulinum toxin is the brand name for a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. The anti-wrinkle injection is a quick and convenient way to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections stop signals to the muscles, allowing the muscles to relax temporarily.
The treatment itself lasts about 5 minutes, but a lot more time is spent beforehand carrying out a comprehensive consultation with each patient. By using small amounts of botulinum toxin, you can create a fresher appearance while maintaining a natural look. If you’re thinking about getting botulinum toxin, here are four ways you can use it.
Smooth Out Lines and Wrinkles
Unfortunately, the ageing process is something that affects all of us. As we get older, lines and wrinkles start to develop. One of the most popular uses of botulinum toxin is to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Horizontal lines and wrinkles on the neck are common complaints of ageing. Botulinum toxin can help smooth out wrinkles on the neck and the face.
Improve Crow’s Feet and Laugh Lines
Crow’s feet are those little lines that spread out from the corners of your eyes. They develop over time from a combination of facial movement and a loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin. Laugh lines or smile lines form around the sides of your mouth and are more noticeable when you smile. You can use botulinum toxin around the eyes and mouth to improve crow’s feet and laugh lines.
Treat Forehead Creases and Frown Lines
When you frown, you may notice those little vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows. They pop up when you’re concentrating or frowning and then disappear. Excessive frowning and facial movements can result in permanent frown lines. Another common issue on the face is forehead wrinkles. Whether it’s frown lines or creases, botulinum toxin could be the forehead wrinkle solution for you.
Soften Jawline and Chin
It’s not just the face that can benefit from botulinum toxin but the jawline and chin. As we age, the muscles in the chin can become overactive. This can create a dimpled appearance. botulinum toxin can help to relax the muscles in the chin and smooth out a dimpled look. You can also smooth out the appearance of wrinkles on the jaw and soften the jawline.
