So you don’t just feel younger, you also look it.
Our facial muscles enable us to express emotions: we frown to express annoyance, we contract our eyebrows to show confusion, while laughter creates wrinkles around the eyes. In youthful skin, wrinkles smooth out as soon as the muscles relax again.
However, in the process of the skin aging, fine wrinkles become more and more pronounced. This is caused by the breakdown of collagen fibres, reduced fat production and a decreasing ability of the cells to store moisture, meaning the skin increasingly loses elasticity and resilience. Botulinum toxin relaxes and smoothes the muscles and effectively slows down the visible ageing signs of the skin.
