Botox reduces dynamic lines in the face. These are lines that show up with movement of our face; when we raise our eyebrows, smile and frown. While Botox reduces dynamic lines, static lines may still be visible. Static lines are creases seen when the face is at rest. Over time, by reducing dynamic lines through Botox treatment, static lines will also soften. To speed up the process of reducing static lines, clients should also consider facial peels, micro needling and dermal fillers.
