Botox Injections for Reduction of Wrinkles

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

These kinds of injections are often used for the treatment of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. The treatment entails 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 the procedure to become apparent and the effects can last as long as 3-4 months.

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

Most individuals know of botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not a generic name, it is trademarked by Allergan. Botulinum toxin is an extremely useful treatment for people who have dynamic lines. Dynamic lines are those lines that show when we make facial expressions. In contrast with dynamic lines or wrinkles are what we call static wrinkles. Static wrinkles or static lines are facial lines which show regardless of whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.

The most suitable candidate for Botox injections:

Botox works most effectively on people who have dynamic wrinkles. People from their mid-twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a botulinum toxin treatment, especially if you have a dynamic line which seems deep when moving your muscles throughout facial expression.

Once people are in their late 50's or early 60's and have a great deal of static lines, botulinum toxin can still work for them, however, the effectiveness of reducing the deepness of the lines can be reduced. For individuals in their late fifties or onwards, it's not always achievable to completely remove deep static lines. So, an ideal candidate for Botox treatments would be individuals in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is not restricted to this age range.

If you have started to get deep wrinkles when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent lines, specifically lines which exist even when you don't use your facial muscles, then you could be a good candidate for Botox injection procedures.
