Botox for Cosmetic and Forehead Wrinkles
Wrinkles on the forehead can make the face look older and more haggard. As people age, the movement of the muscles involved in facial expressions produces permanent folds in the skin.
One of the benefits of Lash Lift Burlington treatments is the relaxation of the facial muscles, resulting in smoother and less wrinkled skin. In areas like the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles are common, the benefits of Botox are particularly valuable.
