I Reduced My Frown Lines Using Botox
After turning 28, Kira started noticing lines on her forehead from smiling and laughing that bothered her.
“I started seeing my doctor for Botox for the lines on my forehead that bothered me. I was a little nervous in the beginning, but my doctor walked me through it,” explained Kira.
Botulinum toxin (Type A) is a cosmetic injection that blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. This effect relaxes and flattens the look of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements on the face—most commonly, between the brows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and horizontal forehead creases.
Kira’s board-certified plastic surgeon had her make a series of expressions before he injected Botox into her forehead. The procedure took about 4-5 minutes.
“It was not painful at all. I was a little swollen after, but with ice I was fine by that evening,” said Kira. “I would definitely recommend Botox, it works for me and I am super happy.”
The maintenance for Botox is about every 3-4 months.
