Here’s How Botox Works
Your forehead does a lot of moving – even if you’re not aware of it. Between squinting, raising your eyebrows, frowning, or thinking, your forehead engages in a lot of micro-expressions.
The problem is, those tiny expressions add up over time, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and even frown lines between the eyebrows.
That’s why Botox was designed to block nerve signals from the brain to the muscles at the injection site. By blocking these nerve signals, Botox effectively (and temporarily) stops micro-expressions, giving your skin the chance to relax and take a metaphorical breather.
As a result, forehead skin looks smoother, with wrinkles, fine lines, and frown lines a lot less obvious.
