If you want to appear more approachable, then you should consider improving your smile with Botox. Botox or botulinum toxin injections temporarily paralyzes the muscle activity in your face. An attractive smile increases your confidence and gives you a more youthful appearance. Here are four ways that botulinum toxin injections can improve your smile.
When some people smile, they show a lot of gum. This can make some people self-conscious. Botox can help with this problem. It is injected into your upper lip and works by dropping your upper lip. This should result in less teeth showing.
Pulling Down at the Corners of your Mouth
Some people have a problem with the corners of their mouth looking like it is pulling down. It gives you the appearance of constantly frowning. Botox is injected into the depressor anguili oris muscle. This results in the corner of your mouth lifting when smiling.
Crow’s feet are the fine lines that appear around your eyes. In the beginning, the lines only show up when you squint or smile. However, it gets to the point where crow’s feet are noticeable when not smiling.
These lines can harden your appearance and make you look older. Crow’s feet also makes you look less fresh then you actually feel. Botulinum toxin injections can significantly reduce the appearance of these lines.
