Botox treatment for frown lines and sagging jaw line?
by Brenda Chou
(Barrie, Ontario, Canada)
Hi! I'm 41 years old and I noticed frown lines around my eyes and jaw. I'm very much worried about the situation. I have tried DIY tips to get rid of the frown but there are no results.
How about undergoing botox treatment?
I haven't undergone any such treatments before. I heard botox cosmetic treatment helps to get rid of deep frown lines. Has anyone tried it? I'm planning to schedule an appointment with a surgeon in Barrie for details.
Are there any risks associated with this procedure? Any advice is highly appreciated.
Botox is known to be pretty effective for deep lines - especially those between the eyebrows.
As far as any specific risks associated with Botox, they're pretty standard and mild for most people...The most common side-effect associated with Botox is swelling, redness, or bruising around the injection site.
However, it's best to discuss your risks with the surgeon you have the appointment with. Some people may be more sensitive to Botox injection than others.
In reference to issues around the jawline, Botox is not effective for weak/sagging muscles or the appearance of jowls. These issues are usually due to a combination slackness in the skin (because of a decrease in collagen production) and lack of muscle tone and firmness.
Sometimes fillers like Restylane can help plump up the skin and provide some lift. In more severe cases, a mini-face lift can work well too. Since you're still pretty young, you can also consider facial exercises.
I started facial exercises in my early 40s but got serious with it in my 50s and still achieved very excellent results.
Now, it took a few months to see results, but the cost was less than $50.00 and there are no side-effects or downtime. I was also able to smooth out my neck wrinkles and lift my chin and jaw area.
