The mechanism by which Botox diminishes unwanted facial lines is very simple. Botox weakens, or if desired, can completely paralyze unnecessary facial muscles. For example, the main reason that people have lines between their eyebrows is that the muscles in the region, when contracted, squeeze the skin into deep creases. Contracting these muscles is often done unconsciously or during intense concentration, but over time, can result in deeply ingrained lines that can create an outward appearance of anger. A few Botox injections into this area can cause a weakening of the muscles so that when a person concentrates, there is much less, if any, squeezing of the brow muscles. The result is a more approachable, friendly and relaxed appearance.
