Botox Injections for Reduction of Wrinkles

Wrinkle reduction procedures using Botulinum toxin A (typically known as Botox ®). These reduce the appearance of wrinkles and result in a smoother appearance.

These kinds of injections are generally used for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines, crow feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. The treatment involves injection of small volumes of toxin either into the muscle tissue or underneath the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for the full effects of medicine to appear and results can last between three to four months.

What is Botox and who could it be of benefit to?

Lots of people know botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not a generic name, it is actually trademarked by a firm called Allergan. Botulinum toxin is a really useful treatment method for people who have dynamic facial lines. Dynamic lines are those lines that show only when we make facial expressions. In contrast to dynamic lines or wrinkles are what we refer to as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles or static lines are facial lines which show whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.

The perfect candidate for Botox injections:

Botox works best on people who have dynamic wrinkles. So, people from their mid-twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a botox treatment, especially if you have a dynamic wrinkle which seems deep when you move your muscles throughout facial expression.

Once people are in their late fifties or early sixties and have a lot of static lines, botulinum toxin can still work for them, however the effectiveness of reducing the deepness of the lines can sometimes be lower. For individuals in their late fifties or onwards, it not always feasible to completely remove deep static lines. An ideal customer for Botox procedures would be individuals in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is by no means restricted to this age range.

If you have just started to get very deep wrinkles when you use your facial muscles or if you have started to develop permanent facial lines, that is lines which are present even when you do not use your facial expression muscles, then you may be a great candidate for Botox injection procedures.
