The Bright, Bold Benefits of Botox for Beau & Bae
If we’re being totally honest, there comes a time in our lives when we can’t sincerely discuss being “flawless,” if we’re not willing to factor Botox into the equation. Particularly when we live in the sunnier parts of the world.
Since our faces are so often exposed to the sun, harsh weather, and the elements, it’s often the first part of the body to be so visibly impacted by the effects of aging. Just compare the quality, complexion, and smoothness of the skin on your face, to the skin on a less-exposed part of your body.
But what if anti-aging was easier than ever? What if it didn’t require surgery or scalpels? What if a few carefully placed drops of a finely distilled toxin could safely prevent so many of our pet peeves?
It turns out that that’s entirely possible.
Most men and women who have reached maturity are more than familiar with the name Botox. It’s the most extensively studied nonsurgical treatment in the world and is also the most popular.
Every year, millions of people—many of them just like you—get Botox for the first time. Here are the bright and bold benefits they get it for:
Botox for Him & Her
Botox reduces forehead lines and creases
Botox works by preventing communication between certain nerve endings and the muscles they are connected to. Done right, it looks perfectly natural and the only thing your friends and family notice is that you look younger and more attractive. More you. As we talk and express our way through life—laughing, smiling, reacting, engaging—the subtle changes in our facial expression eventually add up to unsightly lines, creases and wrinkles on our forehead. Botox resolves this by carefully targeting the microscopic nerve endings that cause the wrinkles to form.
Botox smoothes out the all-too-common crow’s feet
As with forehead wrinkles, the eyes are also ultra expressive, just as they should be. They’re also a prime center of attention, and where friends, associates, and lovers look at us most. To look younger, we have to get rid of some of the lines and wrinkles that spread out from our eyes into the sides of the face. If you look in the mirror, you’ll get a perfect idea of why they’re called crow’s feet, to begin with. Botox will clear those up a perfectly pleasing complexion.
Botox clears up frown lines
Despite the name, frowning isn’t even a prerequisite to frown lines. A wide variety of facial expressions will eventually give us very obvious vertical lines between our eyebrows. Here again, strategically injected Botox will have those gone in a matter of days. While you can get Botox in multiple areas of your face in any one treatment session, simply resolving the frown lines goes a long way to youthful beauty.

Botox can slim the jaw for a more refined and feminine vibe
Aside from whisking away wrinkles, Botox can also be used to slim down and contour the face. For a thinner and more feminine look, the masseter muscles that sit at the back of the jaw are injected with Botox in order to reduce their appearance. Over time, chewing, and unknowingly grinding our teeth together at night builds these muscles up nicely. But we ladies can do without that bulk. A few simple injections of Botox will leave us looking dramatically slimmer and more fabulously feminine.
Botox resolves that pesky gummy smile
There is a certain symmetry to a sensual face and it usually doesn’t include the lips resting high on your gums every time you smile. A few doses of Botox injected into the upper lip will limit its rise while not making it look frozen or unnatural. It’s an incredibly effective way to make the face look more feminine and it lasts as long as 4 to 6 months.
Botox gives a lovely lip flip
Yet another bold use of Botox on the lips is in what’s commonly called a lip flip. If your upper lip seems to “disappear” when you smile, or you think you could do with fuller lips, this one’s for you. In a virtually painless procedure, Botox is injected at the corners of the upper lip in order to prevent some of the muscle movements that cause the dreader lip disappearance.
