BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Las Vegas for good reason. It’s a safe, quick, and painless way to improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines. In fact, Boxtox is FDA approved for improvement in moderate to severe lines in all three of these areas.
How does Botox improve the look of facial wrinkles?
Skin changes as we age. Less collagen and elastin in in the skin can cause skin to sag and loose elasticity. Combine these changes with repeated facial movements and wrinkles begin to form. Botox is an injectable neuromodulator that relaxes facial muscles to soften the look of facial lines and creases. The treatment works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the injected muscle from contracting.
Properly administered, Botox will provide a natural younger look by relaxing facial muscles and smoothing out facial folds and furrows. Depending on how deep your wrinkles are, patients may need more or less product to obtain ideal results.

What is Baby Botox?
Botox can also be used preventatively to delay the formation of new facial creases. These prevention treatments are sometimes called Baby Botox, with some people beginning treatment in their late 20s and early 30s. By limiting the movement of wrinkle-causing muscles, deep facial lines are slower to form. The lower dose Botox can also reduce fine lines and work well in delicate areas to reduce crow’s feet.
With a Baby Botox treatment, lower doses of Botox are used to minimize wrinkles while still allowing facial movement. The units of Botox are also very strategically placed. With well-placed lower doses, a Baby Botox treatment inhibits wrinkles without a “frozen look.” Baby Botox treatment in certain areas can also be combined with standard Botox treatment in more troublesome areas for a personalized natural look.
Before administering Botox (and competitors like Dysport and Xeomin) your Zenestar aesthetic specialist will perform a consultation to determine your optimal treatment plan for a full area correction.
Can Botox Improve your Mood?
Botox is not designed to completely remove facial expressions. However, because many of the wrinkles treated with Botox are associated with frowning, your mood may improve after being treated with Botox, and not just because you look good. In fact, according to a 2009 study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, by reducing your ability to frown Botox cosmetic therapy such as correlates with a more positive mood. The results of the study support the facial feedback view that frowning can make one unhappier. Treatments that prevent frowning therefor correlate with reduced negative mood.
Just one more reason to smile after visiting Zenestar for aesthetic services.
