Botox treatments are most useful in the upper one third of the face as they improve frown lines on the forehead as well as the crowÍs feet. Small amounts of Botox injected into the muscles of the forehead and the crow’s feet region result in a temporary block of nerve impulse transmission to the muscle thus weakening of these muscles. This muscular weakening significantly flattens the frown lines and creases. The effect lasts about three months, and re-injection at regular intervals is needed to maintain the desired effect. In small quantities, Botox may also be used to soften the “smoker’s lines” of the upper lip and the muscles of expression around the mouth.
