Just like any other muscle in your body, your facial muscles can get sore and tired. We may not notice it as much because they are so small and using them has become second nature, like when we laugh and smile after a joke or when we widen our eyes in shock.

When facial muscles become sore from repeated use, they can grow stiff. This can cause them to lock into odd and unnatural-looking shapes. The skin above these muscles can be distorted by these odd shapes and can begin to form lines and wrinkles where these facial muscles are present.

Botox can be used to provide your facial muscles with temporary relief. Botox relaxes the facial muscles and allows them to return to their natural shape, restoring the smooth and beautiful look of your face. Contact KH Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation for your Botox injections.
